HOLKER Old Boys boss Guy Heffernan would love to seal a play-off spot in his first season in charge.

And the Stags are right in the mix and in good form following last week’s 2-1 victory over Bacup Borough.

Goals from JP Stanway and Nathan Reid sealed the deal and keeps Old Boys biting at the heels of the top six in the North West Counties Division One.

Heffernan’s men can further improve their chances with victory over Oswestry Town at Rakesmoor Lane tomorrow.

After their Macron Cup second-round saga against AFC Liverpool finally reached a conclusion with defeat on Merseyside recently, Holker can focus more on their league prospects.

With 17 league games still to go, the situation is far from desperate for West Lancs League Premier Division strugglers Vickerstown.

But at the same time, the Walneyites do need to start winning soon if they are pull away from trouble.

And a home game against Burscough Richmond represents a good opportunity for them to bag a valuable three points.

In Division Two, Millom showed what they are all about last weekend by beating leaders Ladybridge 3-1 through a Phil Edmondson brace and a customary strike from record scorer Carl Waters.

Another home win for Millom – against fourth-placed Charnock Richard reserves – will keep them well in contention at the top.

At the other end of the table Furness Rovers are now level on points with Cavaliers following their 1-1 draw with Tempest United reserves.

Josh Jones scored the goal to celebrate a good 24 hours all round for him after winning in the boxing ring for Barrow ABC at the Freemasons show in Grange.

Rovers will take confidence from that point away with them to Croston Sports, while Cavaliers host Lostock St Gerards in a game they will be desperate to win.

Division One action sees Crooklands Casuals and Hawcoat Park at home to Eagley and Fulwood reserves respectively, while Askam United go to Lytham United and GSK Ulverston Rangers visit Stoneclough.

Park are perhaps best placed of the four teams to win the South Cumbria mini-league and Trevor Houston’s side will be confident of earning three points against lowly Fulwood.

Crooklands Casuals could certainly do with three points against fourth-placed Eagley at Longlands Park to lift themselves further away from the danger zone.

Hawcoat Park reserves look a good bet to maintain their big lead at the top of the Furness Premier League Premier Division as they go to bottom club Dalton United reserves.

Club-mates Hawcoat A are also top of their respective league – Division One – but their advantage is just four points. And with Park not in league action tomorrow, second-placed Millom A can close the gap to a single point if they overcome Furness Rovers reserves.

Elsewhere, there is Horne Cup action for teams operating in the FPL’s second and third tiers.
