Central Drive will see action for the first time in over three months when Walney Central face Halton Farnworth Hornets in the North West Men's League Premier Division.

For different reasons, the Cents have not staged a home game since their BARLA Cup semi-final date with Rochdale Mayfield A in early March.

Having played most of their eight games so far away from home, results have not gone their way with just one win and they are second-bottom in the table, while Halton are fourth with five wins and one loss.

Cents joint coach Dave Warne said ahead of the game: “It's just good to get in a home game. It's not been ideal but with seven of our last nine games at Central Drive, we have the opportunity to climb up the table.

"It's a credit to the lads who keep on training and going away - it has not been easy but they have stuck in.”

Back in a strongly-named squad for Walney are Brad Nicholls, Andy Litherland, Jamie Morrow, Matty Elliott, Dale Waite and Stu Tippett.

Unavailable for the game are Ellis Rea, Paul Wilkes and Matty Solsby.

In Division Three of the National Conference League, Batley Boys pay their first ever visit to Devonshire Road as they take on a Millom side looking to bounce back from a 30-4 defeat at Salford City Roosters.

Coach Tom Sibley, although disappointed with the loss, was full of praise for his players which included four 16-year-olds in Rio McQuistan, Jack Newbiggin, Dan Hartley and try scorer Dylan Sykes.

Sibley said: “These kids came in and did themselves proud. We will bounce back and get some pride back, as all we need is a settled team.”

Key man Jonathan Hodgson's season looks over he has a troublesome knee.

Hindpool Tigers take on Wigan St Judes A at Brisbane Park in Division Two of the North West Men's League. No team news was available going to press.

Hindpool are looking to build on their impressive 42-22 victory against Roose Pioneers in the North West Men's League Trophy last week.

Pioneers and Ulverston are both without a fixture this weekend, meaning the latter have now gone almost a month since they were last in action, against Blackbrook.
