WAKEFIELD FC face their biggest match of the season so far today when they travel to Cammell Laird (kick-off 3pm).

The match is a proverbial relegation ‘six-pointer’, with both sides occupying the relegation spots in Evo-Stik Division 1 North.

The Bears sit bottom of the pile and victory will be key against a Lairds side sitting one place and two points above them in the table.

Paul Lines’s men sit five points from safety with a game in hand on Harrogate Railway Athletic, and although defeat in Birkenhead wouldn’t spell relegation for Wakefield, it’d make survival a difficult task.

Ossett Town know first-hand that a trip to Cammell Laird is anything but an easy one.

Eric Gilchrist’s men lost 1-0 there at the weekend and will be looking to bounce back this weekend when they kick-off three home matches on the spin.

But today’s game welcomes league leaders AFC Fylde to Stade France (kick-off 3pm) and Town will need to be at the top of their game.

Ossett Albion also face a tough task when they visit play-off chasing Lancaster City (kick-off 3pm).

Albion reserves are in action at the Warehouse Systems Stadium at 3pm when they take on Eccleshill United in the Lancashire League East Division.
