Lancaster City will take on Liversedge on Tuesday night (October 25) looking to climb out of the relegation zone.

The Giant Axe will host a crucial match between the 19th and 18th placed teams in the Northern Premier League Premier Division.

This comes before an FA Trophy first round tie for the home side against Gainsborough Trinity next Saturday (October 29) followed by a visit from Stafford Rangers in the league on November 5.

The Dollies drew 1-1 at top of the table FC United of Manchester on Saturday.

It was a well-deserved result and it wouldn’t be a stretch to say Mark Fell’s men could’ve left Broadhurst Park with all three points.

They are currently in the bottom four but could overtake their opponents with victory on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Liversedge picked up a vital away win against Nantwich Town at the weekend which lifted them out of the drop zone.

‘Sedge’ have had a torrid run at home this season, losing all eight of their league games at Clayborn, but have been more fortuitous on the road, winning four of their seven away matches.

On the other hand, Lancaster have only won once at the Axe this season.

The West Yorkshire side are currently playing out their first ever season in the seventh tier, having been promoted as champions from Northern Premier League Division One East in the spring.

City boss Mark Fell said on Saturday to the club website that “we will have to shuffle the pack a little bit” in the next three games because of how intense the coming set of fixtures will be, so there could be a few changes to the starting line-up on Tuesday.

The Dolly Blues boss wants to see his side replicate several aspects of their performance against FC United of Manchester.

Lancaster City v Liversedge kicks off at 7.45pm at the Giant Axe.
