HAVING beaten the league leaders last week, Campion will be aiming to do it again tomorrow at home to Selby Town.

The Bradford side gave their Northern Counties East League Division One promotion hopes a huge boost after toppling Winterton Rangers 3-1 on their own patch.

That allowed Selby to replace Rangers at the summit, as Town romped to an 11-2 hammering of rock-bottom visitors East Hull, Casey Stewart and Liam Flanagan both claiming hat-tricks.

Campion are sure to give the North Yorkshire side a much stiffer test, especially given the Scotchman Road side won the corresponding away fixture 3-2 in October.

Campion's joint-boss, Lee Ashforth, said: "We have to be confident if we want to achieve our goals. We’ve beat them once already and can complete the double. With our home form as well, we’ve only lost once all season."

The Red and Blacks, currently in fifth spot, were denied the chance to build on their eye-catching win over Winterton in midweek. Frustratingly, Tuesday night’s fixture against Parkgate was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Ashforth said: "It was expected. It’s given us time to prepare well for Saturday. We are all focused."

He will be hoping the weather doesn't mean proceedings are called off at the weekend, as Campion look to close the gap between the two teams to five points.

A win could see them break into the last of the top four promotion slots, with Ashforth's men hoping to make up for last season's heartbreak.

With just the title winners going up last season, Campion missed out in a winner takes all final-day defeat to Grimsby Borough.

Ashforth said: "We are just as determined as last year. The goal has always been to finish first. It was just unfortunate then that we couldn't beat Grimsby on the last day."

Campion have a fully fit squad to choose from, including striker Aidan Kirby, who joined from Silsden in January.

He has been in prolific form since moving down a division, with Ashforth saying: "He trains hard and is very talented. His goals have been massive for us too and he is now one of the leading characters in the dressing room."
