Millom are home to Heworth in Division Three of the National Conference League and are aiming to kick on from last week's Barton Townley Cup final victory against Ulverston.

Coach Tom Sibley is looking for several wins to push the Woolybacks' claim for promotion, saying: "It's time to push on. It was a good win last week but it's league points we need.

"It's vital that we get home wins - if we are to be contenders for promotion, we have to keep the pressure on those above us. I'm sure we will get a good crowd behind us and get the points.

"It was good to see so many young lads come through their first major final last week, they will have gained much experience.”

Rickie Donaghue, Connor Mitchell and Connor Terrill are out, the latter with a broken arm. Back in contention are Midge Dixon, Jordon Moyes and Dillon Sykes.

Barrow Island are away to Shaw Cross Sharks and await news on Adam Jackson (work commitments) and Blain Marwood, who could start his trial period with Workington. Coming in is Dan White, but work rules out Matt Parkinson.

Coach Joe Elliott said: “We ground out a win over Dudley Hill and we're pushing on for promotion, it would be good for us and the area to have a team in Division One.

"We are not at peak yet but there is a lot of character amongst the lads and when we hit the right notes we will really take off.”

Askam, who prop up Division Two with just one win from ten, face a tricky hurdle at Crosfields and will travel minus Kris Tyson, Jamie Butler, Tom Hopkins and possibly Russ Bolton.

Stand-in coach Tammy Tyson said: “We are struggling for numbers and with key men out, but we will get 17.”

Meanwhile, Walney Central are also on their travels (they haven't played at home for three months), as they go to Ashton Bears, who are second in the Premier Division of the North West Men's League.

Joint coach Dave Warne has named himself in the 17 man squad, along with Adam Nicholson, but ruled out are Brad Nicholls and Matty Elliott.

Warne said: “Myself and [joint boss] Dave Bell are looking for a workmanlike performance to get us going again. It's not good always being away, but we have three home games on the bounce so we'll look to get up the table.”
