SILSDEN'S flawless start to the Hallmark Security League season faces its biggest test so far tonight as the Division One leaders travel to take on their closest challengers.

Second-placed Prestwich Heys will be fresh after their weekend home fixture against St Helens Town was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

They may be immediately below the Cobbydalers in the table but they trail Danny Forrest's pacesetters by 11 points having played the same number of games.

Silsden are leaving all title rivals in their wake as their remarkable 100 per cent start remains intact after 16 matches. Third-placed Litherland REMYCA have two games in hand but are currently 13 points adrift.

Forrest's men will be in good spirits for tonight's road trip after brushing aside Daisy Hill at the weekend. Striker Joe Gaughan and substitute Nicky McNally bagged a brace apiece and Arley Barnes netted a fifth in a 5-1 victory.

Two other Bradford area clubs are in Toolstation Northern Counties East League action and they are also away from home.

LIVERSEDGE travel to the east coast to take on Hull-based Hall Road Rangers in the Premier Division.

The tenth-placed hosts are seven places higher in the table and four points better off but they have played one game more at this stage.

Sedge were beaten 3-1 at Maltby Main on Saturday, a result which lifted the winners to fourth and left Sedge in 17th place.

Hall Road were also beaten as they exited the FA Vase, losing 4-2 at home to third-placed league rivals Pontefract Collieries.

CAMPION will be looking to consolidate their play-off place in Division One but face a tough game at the side immediately below them.

James Bicknell's men hauled themselves back into the top six with a 6-0 demolition of Worsbrough Bridge Athletic at the weekend and will need to get at least a draw to defend that spot against a Shirebrook Town side they leapfrogged.

Yet Shirebrook have not won since the first day of the month and they lost 2-1 at mid-table Ollerton Town at the weekend.
