Liversedge on a tightrope in Premier

LIVERSEDGE must feel as if they are walking a tightrope in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division as they prepare to entertain high flyers Tadcaster Albion, tomorrow, kick-off 3pm.

The Clayborners are aiming to avoid a sixth defeat in seven matches tomorrow which has left them 13th in the table with 27 points, just seven above the relegation places. Every point they gain from now on is vital if they are not to sink into trouble.

A points boost could easily see them rise up the table such is the closeness of the division this season.

Tomorrow’s opponents Tadcaster will be a big test for Liversedge. They have been near the top of the table all season but have stuttered recently losing two of their last three games.

Liversedge boss Billy Miller explained: “I know their manager Paul Marshall and he will have them fired up to meet us.”

Miller is taking plenty of positives from his side’s 4-1 defeat at Parkgate last Saturday.

“Dave Bordman scored again for us, we had James Riordan and Jake Lawler at centre half with Simon Wood at full back. Damien Hopkin is back and we hope Karl Horseman will return soon.”

Miller hasn’t ruled out more signings and says the competition for places is good for the team.
