Sports looking for another victory over Atherton Collieries


Mickleover and Stalybridge Celtic pre-match

Mickleover welcome Atherton Collieries to the Don Amott Arena this Saturday and will be hoping to replicate their win against them earlier on in the season.


The game has been brought forward, as it was meant to take place at the end of January.


The two sides played each other at Atherton less than a month ago on October 16th, Mickleover won 2-1 in what is currently their only away win of the season and only win in the league since August.


Both teams have struggled recently, Atherton have only picked up one point since the reverse fixture, whilst Mickleover have not won since then either.


Mickleover lost their last game 3-1 against Radcliffe and Atherton fell to a 2-0 defeat at Buxton on Tuesday night.


Mickleover are currently down in 21st in the table, whilst Atherton are not doing too much better as they lie in 16th.


Atherton manager Brad Cooke will be hoping for victory against Sports, as three points could see them go up a potential five places in the table.


A win for Mickleover could see them lifted out of the relegation zone.


It promises to be a captivating tie between two struggling teams desperate for a win.


Mickleover will be without striker Declan Bacon who has gone back to league rivals Gainsborough Trinity.


The game kicks off at 3pm this Saturday at the Don Amott Arena.
