THE top match in South Lancashire/Cheshire One League tomorrow should be at Malone Field where Anselmians take on Widnes with a lot at stake.

Widnes need a win to clinch the title and take a step back towards regaining their North One status. Anselmians are desperate for points to aid their fight to avoid the dreaded second-to-bottom position. Birch-field are already relegated.

Anselmians have had a mixed season and the deduction of two points by the league over a player issue could yet prove crucial.

Widnes will step out as favourites but one can never write off the Wirral outfit, who are more settled now after a bad run of injuries.

Southport, who are also too near the relegation zone for com-fort, face a tough hurdle at Wirral who need a confidence boost ahead of their unexpected Easter appearance in the Thwaites Cheshire Cup final.

Warrington and Northwich, at the wrong end of the table, meet at Moss Farm, Wigan are at Birchfield and Leigh entertain unpredictable Vagabonds, Isle of Man.
