Liversedge face a crucial clash in their fight against relegation from the Northern Counties East League Premier Division when they travel to Nostell Miners Welfare on Saturday (ko 3pm).

Liversedge lie 16th in the table, without a win in their last six outings, while third-bottom Nostell are eight points behind but with a game in hand.

Victory would help ease the Clayborners worries but defeat would plunge them deep into a battle against the drop.

March is set to be a vital month for Sedge as they face six matches, all at home, including one against second-bottom Retford United and a derby clash with Thackley.

Liversedge have not recorded victory since beating Albion Sports on January 3 and have lost all four games in February.

Nostell have picked up form of late having won three out of five matches this month, with former Liversedge striker Rob Bordman in terrific form.
