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

By Brendan Doyle

Bootle welcome Trafford to The Berry Street Garage Stadium on this Good Friday afternoon. As Bootle look to maintain their play off position, Trafford continue to battle to survive another season in the division.

Bootle are coming off the back of a 2-0 away win at Kidsgrove Athletic, which was the result they needed to bounce back with after a 2-1 defeat at home to Clitheroe a week prior. As The Bucks continue to push for promotion and maintain their position in the play off areas, another obstacle they must overcome is today’s opponents Trafford in which Bootle gaffer Mick McGraa described in the Kidsgrove Athletic post match interview as “massive” and “the biggest game of the season.” As is every game in Bootle’s run in.

Trafford currently sit 4 points above the relegation zone but will be expected to leave everything on the pitch to ensure their survival in the division in their remaining fixtures of the season. The visitors from Greater Manchester will not be taken lightly by Bootle considering their circumstances, Mick McGraa will know full well that his squad must be at their best to come away with 3 points in today’s fixture.
