We are back at Shawbridge as Clitheroe welcome Yorkshire side Tadcaster Albion in what is sure to be a tasty affair.

Both sides come into this game in positive spirits with the visitors picking a good point against a very difficult test in South Shields with Simon Haworths side gaining a very valuable three points in an impressive 3-0 victory away to Droylsden.

It was an important victory for the Blues to send them into the top six of the table very much in the mix.

Haworth has no new injury concerns with Joe Mitchell in contention to return after a minor injury to replace the suspended Ross Dent.

The Blues boss said after the Droylsden win that his team "are not even a shadow of the team that faced Tadcaster last time out" and that they can be in for a real game.

Clitheroe's Alex Newby and Kurt Willoughby are in sensational form right now with them picking up their nineteenth and twenty-fifth goals of the season respectively on Tuesday.

Tadcaster's away from is something that needs improving if they are to put any pressure on the top six this season with just three wins from thirteen with a win from Clitheroe being crucial to keep their top six hopes in order.
