League leaders come to Harrison Park

LEEK Town face a stern rest at Harrison Park tomorrow (Jan 12) when Evo-Stik NPL West Division leaders Radcliffe are the visitors.

Blues are sixth in the table, nine points below Radcliffe, but with two games in hand.

It will be the first time the two sides have met this season. The scheduled clash was twice postponed due to both sides cup commitments.

The return meeting at Radcliffe’s Neuven Stadium is now set for Tuesday, February 12.

Both sides enter tomorrow’s clash looking to continue their recent good recent run of results. Blues are unbeaten in seven league games with five wins and two draws whilst Radcliffe have won nine of their last 10 outings..

Radcliffe’s only setback came on Boxing Day when they went down 2-1 at Ramsbottom United which is where Leek drew 1-1 last Saturday.

Neil Baker (pictured) will have to check on the fitness of striker Tim Grice, whose recurring knee problem led to him being rested for the game at Ramsbottom last week.

“Tim’s feeling the injury a little, so it made sense to give him a rest. It was better for him to miss the one game than risk playing him and then losing him for a few weeks,” Baker told the Sentinel’s Jim Hannah. “Hopefully, he will be ready for the weekend.”

Blues are hoping for a big crowd for the match at Harrison Park , which is being sponsored by Stanic Motors.
