Bacup Have Their Eye On Nelson Battle

Bacup Borough will finally get the chance to take on Nelson at Little Wembley this evening, kick-off 7.45 pm, with a place in the second round of the Lancashire Co-Operative Trophy up for grabs and a trip to Evo Stik League oufit Radcliffe Borough. Borough will have captain and vice-captain Daniel Cocks and Otis Gorman both available for selection after serving their one match bans at Congleton Town on Saturday.

Under the management of Robert Grimes and Michael Morrison Nelson enjoyed a great start to their season in Division One of the North West Counties League, being unbeaten in their first six league matches. However, since then they have encountered four straight league defeats culminating in the resignation a week ago of their management team, to be replaced by coach Shadab Iftikhar as caretaker boss. Shadab witnessed his charges go down to a 0-2 home reverse at the hands of Daisy Hill on Saturday.

As usual live twitter feeds from the game will be available on @bacupborough and @bacupboro
