Silsden v Winsford United

Silsden v Winsford United

First published in Sport by

Silsden will be keen for a return to action in the North West Counties League on Saturday after last weekend’s postponement.

The Cobbydalers are due to host fellow Premier Division strugglers Winsford United.

Andy Geary’s men are above their visitors on goal difference only, with both clubs just four points above the drop zone.

It is a must-win fixture for Silsden as the Cheshire outfit have a game in hand on Geary’s young side.

The Cobbydalers will be rusty as they have played just once this year – two matches called off sandwiched a 2-2 draw at AFC Blackpool a fortnight ago.

Spokesman Jim Rosser said: “We were a bit unlucky last time out because the first time our defence was opened up they scored.

“We were down to ten men for about ten minutes when Danny Gleave was receiving treatment and although we turned the game with two goals from Chris Wademan, Blackpool got a late equaliser.

“We’re not out of trouble yet but that’s why this is a big game for us.”
