Clitheroe co-manager Neil Reynolds is hoping a win tonight against FC United at Shawbridge can launch the Blues' season in UniBond Division One North.
Reynolds' side has taken just one point from 15 this season and will be missing goalkeeper Pete Collinge, Will Exton and Ryan Fisher, while they are sweating on the fitness of John Osbourne.
But he said: "We haven't started well, but I'm hoping this can kick start our season.
"It's a fantastic fixture for the club and it's one we're all really looking forward to."
Chris Ward returns from injury.
Gates open at 6pm, kick off 7.45pm
