THACKLEY'S cup exploits this season have left them with several games in hand over the other teams in the relegation battle and if they can beat fellow strugglers Hall Road Rangers tomorrow, they would be all but safe.

The Dennyboys were in the FA Vase until November and have three games in hand over third-bottom Rangers, who are four points behind them in the Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division.

A win for Thackley could move them as many as nine points clear of the drop zone, meaning they could probably switch their focus to finishing as high up the table as possible come the end of April.

Albion Sports have a reasonable away record this season, and they will be expecting a fifth league win on the road when they visit rock-bottom Goole AFC.

Liversedge will not be looking forward to hosting high-flying Hemsworth Miners Welfare tomorrow. Their visitors racked up a stunning win in their last match, running out 8-0 winners at shellshocked mid-table side Athersley Recreation.

Eccleshill United have not lost in the league since October but it will be a tough ask to keep that run going tomorrow. They host league leaders Yorkshire Amateur.

Silsden continue to drop rapidly down the Hallmark Security League Premier Division table, with their latest defeat a 2-1 home reverse against Whitchurch Alport.

They should get back on track this weekend when they host Abbey Hey. Their visitors have had a miserable season so far, and are 10 points adrift at the foot of the table.

Steeton suffered a bad 5-2 defeat at Ashton Town last Saturday in the First Division North and they will hope to get back on track when they visit the seaside to take on fellow mid-table side AFC Blackpool tomorrow.

In the Evo-Stik League Premier Division, Farsley Celtic played out a thrilling 3-3 draw last week with fellow title challengers Warrington Town.

They will expect to earn all three points tomorrow though, in their home clash with 13th-placed Grantham Town.

Brighouse Town are still in the title fight in Evo-Stik East after last Saturday's 3-1 win at Belper Town and they will hope to win again at home to struggling AFC Mansfield tomorrow.
