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

By Brendan Doyle

For the second time since Saturday, Mick McGraa’s Bootle squad are back on the road in a battle for 3 points looking to extend their impressive undefeated run as they travel to Clitheroe, who are on the hunt for a place of their own in the play off areas.

After an impressive 3-1 win in Oldham on the weekend, The Bucks moved up to 4th place and extended their impressive undefeated run to 6 games without a loss. A win tonight against Clitheroe who are yet to lose in 2024 would push Bootle just 3 points behind fellow Merseysiders Prescot Cables whilst widening the points gap from Witton Albion to 4 points.

Clitheroe are undefeated in 2024 and sit just 3 points behind the play off areas, if Clitheroe get a result against their visitors they will then edge above Witton Albion on goal difference. The Blues will surely bring their A game in front of a home crowd tonight in order to push for a potential promotion at the end of the season, and a win at Shawbridge would be a huge step in the right direction.
