BACUP and Rossendale Borough are in action tonight as they bid to climb out of the North West Counties League Premier Division relegation zone.

Brent Peters’ men did themselves a power of good when they held league leaders Runcorn Linnets to a draw on Merseyside at the weekend.

But on Monday night they were beaten 4-1 by Winsford United at West View and to add insult to injury Borough had Lee Oldham sent off.

That was a shock to the system for Borough and meant that as the season enters its final month they are still in the mire.

They welcome Squires Gate to West View tonight.
