Silsden host Winsford United on Saturday still battling against the drop from the North West Counties League Premier Division.

The Cobbydalers’ top-tier status should be secure but there is still a mathematical chance they could be relegated.

Following a tough run of fixtures, Silsden have picked up just two points from their last five games but the clubs below them have not made any significant improvement.

Following Wednesday’s 2-2 home draw against Abbey Hey, Cobbydalers’ official Jim Rosser said: “We should be going into Saturday on the back of a win.

“We were 2-0 up at home to Abbey Hey in midweek and they were never in the game in the first half. We should have had three points sewn up by half-time but we threw them away from a position of strength.

“But then they do say that 2-0 is a dangerous scoreline.”
