Home advantage key, says Peters

BACUP and Rossendale Borough will bid to stretch their unbeaten North West Counties League Premier Division run to four matches tomorrow at home to title-challenging Norton United (3pm).
Borough continued their improved form by earning a 1-1 derby draw at Barnoldswick Town in midweek.
Brent Peters is pleased by his 18th-placed side’s upturn in form.
But he is refusing to get carried away ahead of the clash with second-placed Norton.
The Bacup boss said: “Slowly but surely we are getting there.
“We have got a nice little run going and we have just taken four from six points on the road which is good form at any level.
“However we must keep it going on Saturday.”
Barnoldswick, who are 10th, face a tricky test themselves tomorrow.
They make the trip to Manchester to take on table-topping Maine Road (3pm).
Colne, who are one place above Barnoldswick in ninth, are without a game.
Their visit to Runcorn Linnets will have to be rearranged as the Cheshire outfit are in FA Cup third qualifying round action.
Nelson return to First Division combat at home to Northwich Flixton Villa (3pm).
The third-placed Victoria Park outfit will be favourites to beat second-from-bottom Northwich having won their last four league matches, scoring 26 goals in the process.
And AFC Darwen could do Nelson a favour if they can secure a home win over second-placed Atherton Collieries.
