MILLOM round off their four-match home run in National Conference League Division Three with the visit of Salford City Roosters tomorrow still looking for their first home win of the NCL season.

The Woolybacks have suffered two close-fought defeats and have been held to a draw so far during the league.

Player-coach Tom Sibley was once more disappointed that his troops fell short for the third successive week last Saturday, with a last-minute drop goal seeing visitors Dewsbury Celtic snatch a 13-12 win.

Sibley said: “It was another loss, but we have been so close in every game and I am hopeful that the win will come tomorrow.

"I can't fault the lads for their efforts, but we must tighten up in defence more.

"The teams that we have played have not been that much greater than us, but we come up short.We just have to play a little bit smarter then it will come.

"The supporters have stuck with us and I hope they will be there again tomorrow”

Tyler Lancaster is unavailable, but otherwise it will be a similar squad to the one which took on Dewsbury.

Askam take on Shaw Cross at Fallowfield Park in Division Two and welcome back Jamie Butler and Kyle Jackson. However, they are without Russ Bolton, Tom Hopkins, Gareth Richards and Tyler Carter, along with hoping Keir Shepherd shakes off a slight knock in time to feature.

The Villagers are aiming to rebound from a defeat away to Barrow Island in last Saturday's derby and coach Dave Clark took encouragement from that game.

"It will be good to get back on track after last week's loss at Barrow Island," said Clark.

"I thought the lads put up a good show in the first half, but Island were much stronger and faster in the second half.”

Island are at Wigan St Judes and welcome back Joe Spenceley and Shane Sanderson, while Josh Banham is unavailable. Coach Joe Elliott said: "We played well last week and I am looking for our first win on the road."
