In the Premier Division of the North West Men's League, Walney Central are home to Shevington Sharks, they look to put last weekend's 72-0 defeat at Haydock, in which they had to field a scratch side, behind them.

Joint-coach Dave Bell said regarding the loss at Haydock: “We were really down in numbers - we only had 14 and I pulled my boots on- not this week, though. It's coming to that time of year with so many things going on, but we should be a little stronger tomorrow.

"We have a run of home games so we need to win them to pull away from the wrong end of the table.”

Matty Elliott and Jordan Staffieri are unavailable while George Nicholls took a knock to his jaw at Haydock and is ruled out. Dave Nicholson returns with Dec Gavin facing a late fitness test.

Folly Lane await the visit of Ulverston, who are keen to get back on track after last week's narrow two-point defeat at the hands of Haresfinch. Key men Jake Spedding and Marc Dixon are ruled out with Will Coles back to cover for Dixon at nine.

“We are on the road and have to pick up the points after losing last week," said coach Dennis Porter.

"It was a blow with Haresfinch getting that late try but our heads are positive for tomorrow, and will leave it late to finalise the squad. Some lads are carrying light knocks but hopefully we will be alright.”

The Dragley Beck side face the Lane next week at home and four points will go a long way to securing another season in Division One.

Roose Pioneers travel to Thatto Heath Crusaders B in Division Three and welcome back Mal Kenny and Alex Brown while old stager Steve Perry plays only his second game of the campaign after a lengthy lay-off.

Chris Holmes is also included along with joint coach Mike Backhouse who said: “There are ins and outs and even myself in, if i am selected.

"It wasn't the best of results at Burtonwood Bridge (33-22), although League Weekly had the score 88-32 in Pioneers favour - if only. We are going with a young side as we continue to build for next season - its been a new experience for many of the lads coming out of the local league.”

Hindpool Tigers and Westhoughton have agreed to call off their game due to both teams being down in numbers and will rearrange the fixture.
