WAKEFIELD FC will aim to continue their good form since the turn of the year when Mossley visit College Grove tonight (kick-off 7.45pm).

The Bears have enjoyed a good run of form this month with just one defeat, at Evo-Stik Division 1 North leaders Chester, from their four games so far.

Boss Steve Nicholson will be looking for more of the same from his troops for the visit of the Lancashire side tonight as Wakefield aim to climb up the table and away from relegation trouble.

The Bears, who sit in 19th, are one of four sides on 19 points at the bottom end of the division, but victory could see them move up to 16th if other results go their way.

Wakefield’s home league form has been good, with an unbeaten run of five games stretching back to the end of September, when Trafford left the Merrie City with a 3-0 victory.

Promotion-chasing Mossley will provide a tough test and will come into the game on the back of a confidence-boosting 3-0 home win against Harrogate Railway Athletic.

Shaun Higgins’ men are also no pushovers on their travels, with a 4-1 win at Trafford proving their promotion credentials last Tuesday.

Struggling Ossett Albion welcome Curzon Ashton to the Warehouse Systems Stadium tonight (kick-off 7.45pm).

Eric Gilchrist’s men, who sit second-from-bottom, are desperate for an upturn in fortunes after falling to defeat and conceding six goals in the process in each of their last two games.
