A look ahead at today's Northern Premier League Division One West clash

By Brendan Doyle

Bootle face Hanley Town today at The Berry Street Garage Stadium in a must win fixture as The Bucks need maximum points in their last 2 games of the season to secure a play off position.

On Wednesday night Bootle suffered a gut wrenching 2-0 derby defeat against City Of Liverpool at The DCBL Stadium, a night to forget for Bootle supporters. A play off position is still in Bootle’s grasp if they can come away from today’s fixture with all 3 points and what a way to bounce back from the defeat on Wednesday night if they can get a win over the line here today.

Hanley Town themselves will be looking to finish their own season as strong as they can by turning up on Merseyside today and claiming a result, the fact they’re undefeated in their last 3 league outings says that they are expected to not make things easy for the hosts today. Their travelling fans from Stoke will be hoping to see their last league outing of the season with a win and for a celebratory journey back home.
