RADCLIFFE Boro travel to second in the Unibond League Division One table Vauxhall Motors on Saturday against one of the top sides in the division.

In the North West Counties League Ramsbottom United saw Division One title hopes almost drown on a waterlogged home pitch on Tuesday when they were held to a 1-1 home draw by bottom of the table Leek CSOB. That shock stalemate followed hot on the heels of a worst defeat of the season last Saturday in a 4-0 mauling away at Newcastle Town. On Saturday they need to pick things up again away at Woodley Sports. Centre back Mike Smith and striker Chris Wilcock are doubts through injury but Mike Langhorn returns.

Elsewhere in Division One Atherton Colls entertain Skelmersdale United at Alder House. Atherton LR's 4-1 win on Tuesday night in a bad tempered Division Two derby game away at Daisy Hill extended the current run of victories for Alan Lord's side to seven, the best the team has achieved since the 1992/93 season.

Tomorrow Lord takes his side to Castleton Gabriels. Daisy look to bounce back from the derby blues with Bacup Boro the visitors to New Sirs. Brian Richardson and Brian Smith's young team needs just one more point to surpass the best ever total of 46 points in a NWCL season.

Brindle Heath clinched the Bolton Combination Division One title in midweek when Diamond were held to a 2-2 home draw by Mitchell Shackleton. Kersal Vale will become Premier Division champions if they beat Walkden tomorrow at home. In the Manchester League two local clubs vying for the Premier Division title clash with Atherton Town at home to defending champions Stand Athletic. In Division One table-topping Leigh Athletic have a home derby game with Hindsford the visitors to Holden Road.
