UPTON AA welcome Redgate Rovers to the Cheshire County Sports Club on Saturday looking to continue their rise up the West Cheshire League Division One table.

Following last week’s gritty 1-0 home win over Maghull, another three points could fire an Upton side who have played the least number of games in the league up to sixth.

And ahead of this weekend’s fixture, Upton boss Todd Reid said his team are full of confidence after displaying another side to their game last time out.

Reid said: “The win (against Maghull) has boosted our confidence because the loss at Rainhill before that was a disappointing one.

“But I was really pleased to see the kind of fight that we showed to beat Maghull. It was a different side to our game and helped get us back to winning ways.

“We lost to Rainhill earlier in the season, but looking back at it, it’s a defeat that we should have won if we didn’t gift them opportunities.

“We’re looking forward to getting back out there after taking great confidence from our game against Maghull, and I’m confident that if the lads need to fight for it on Saturday, they will be able to do so.”

Reid could be boosted for the game by the return of Sean Finch and goalkeeper John Nieborg.

Meanwhile, Upton’s WCL Division One rivals Chester Nomads will host Ashville in their Pyke Cup Quarter Final clash, with Upton visiting Ellesmere Port Town in another last eight contest next week.

Division Three side Chester Nomads Reserves will face a difficult test against the league leaders FC Bootle St Edmunds as they look to bounce back from two consecutive 4-0 losses.

In Division Two of the Cheshire Football League, Newton Athletic will also be looking to get back to winning ways as the fifth placed side visit Golborne after suffering a 3-1 reverse to Partington Village last time out.

Blacon Youth Club, meanwhile, go to Crewe in a rearranged Premier Division Challenge Cup fixture.
