Local Football – Weekend Fixtures – Pre-match report by MARK BIRTLES

Stoke City host West Bromwich Albion this weekend in a midlands derby this weekend at The Bet 365 Stadium.

Stoke – off the back of Monday’s draw with Huddersfield, will face a Baggies side who haven’t lost in eight and are unbeaten in their last six away from home.


Port Vale travel to The DW Stadium to take on Wigan Athletic and will be hoping to climb out of the bottom four of League One.

The Valiants sit just one point behind Burton Albion, who occupy the last safe spot in the division, but will need a result against a Wigan side who are unbeaten in their last five at home.


Crewe Alexandra make the trip to Lancashire to take on Accrington, looking to get their stuttering promotion push back on track.

The Alex – beaten 3-0 by bottom side Forest Green on Monday, haven’t scored a goal in their last two, but face an Accrington team who haven’t kept a clean sheet in nine.


Into non-league where Newcastle Town make the trip over to Cheshire to take on Witton Albion.

Kidsgrove Athletic host Widnes at The Autonet Stadium looking for two wins in a week.

Champions Leek Town go to The Vestacre Stadium to play Avro.

Nantwich Town will look to continue their impressive form when Stalybridge Celtic visit The Weaver Stadium.

And Stafford Rangers host Whitby Town at Marston Road.


Women’s football this weekend sees just two games locally.
