There’s a four-way relegation scrap unfolding at the foot of the North West Counties Premier Division - and Barnoldswick Town are in the thick of it.

With their fixture against Winsford United at the Barton Stadium postponed at the weekend due to a waterlogged pitch, Stewart Airdrie’s side face a derby against Nelson on Bank Holiday Monday.

The Blues battered Barlick 5-0 in August, but they’ll have the opportunity to avenge that loss at the Silentnight Stadium (kick-off 3 p.m.).

Bacup and Rossendale Borough, four points adrift of Town with two games in hand, travel to 1874 Northwich tomorrow before hosting Colne in three days time.

Elsewhere on Monday, St Helens Town take on Ashton Athletic at Brocstedes Park while AFC Blackpool entertain Squires Gate.
