PREVIEW: Clitheroe (H)

It’s a speedy return to the Harry Williams Riverside Stadium for our east Lancashire neighbours, Clitheroe, but they’ll be returning in good spirits having knocked the Rams out of the Integro Cup on Wednesday night.

That game went straight to penalties after Jack Higgs wind-assisted injury time equaliser tied the score at 1-1, but it was the visitors who progressed 7-6 from the penalty spot.

But tomorrow it is back to the bread-and-butter of the League with three points at stake.

Clitheroe will be hoping that Wednesday’s victory can re-boot their season after the resignation of newly-appointed manager Stuart Mellish and the disappointing start to the campaign, whilst the Rams will be looking to get the 4-0 drubbing at Leek last Saturday out of their system.

Games between these two local rivals have often proved entertaining and occasionally controversial, so supporters of both sides can look forward to an entertaining 90 minutes of non-league action.
