SILSDEN took their lead in Division One back into double figures with a storming Hallmark Security League victory on Boxing Day and will be looking to maintain their 12-point advantage with another win tomorrow.

The Cobbydalers head into Cheshire to take on Sandbach United, who are handily placed in ninth and are just six points outside the play-off zone.

Danny Forrest's men have a bigger goal, however – to win the division and return to the top tier.

They underlined that desire by bouncing back after second-placed Litherland REMYCA had inflicted only a second defeat this term.

Silsden have won their other 19 league games, the last one 6-0 when they hosted struggling Chadderton.

Chris Wademan helped himself to a hat-trick, while Joe Gaughan bagged a brace and Mateusz Tomas was also on the scoresheet.

There were no games in the Northern Counties East League on Boxing Day but tomorrow's round of matches are the reverse of last Saturday.

Some sides will be desperate for revenge after surprise results, with Division One duo Eccleshill United and Campion both being held to draws by lowly opposition.

Seventh-placed CAMPION needed a last-gasp equaliser from Graham Hall to snatch a point at rock-bottom Brigg Town.

James Bicknell's men are still just one place outside the play-off places but are now four points adrift as they welcome the Zebras to the Stadium.

ECCLESHILL were expected to brush third-bottom Nostell Miners' Welfare aside but found themselves 3-1 down at half-time.

Second-half goals from Antony Brown and Jonny Irving helped the home side rescue a point from a 3-3 draw.

The Eagles were looking for the win that might have taken them back to the top but the stalemate cost them second place and they are now third as they head to Nostell, who climbed out of the relegation zone.

In the Premier Division, mid-table LIVERSEDGE did well at fourth-placed Pickering Town.

The Pikes needed a stoppage-time equaliser to snatch a home draw after Sedge had led 2-0 early in the second half.

ALBION SPORTS travelled to basement outfit Clipstone and romped to a 6-1 win, with Danny Facey netting four times.

Kulwinder Sandhu's men will be looking for another victory as they host a Clipstone side yet to pick up a point.

THACKLEY, who had a blank Saturday, are at mid-table rivals Bridlington Town.

The clubs were both pushing for promotion last term but have underperformed so far this season.
