Bacup and Rossendale Borough need a boost tonight when they make the trip to the seaside to face AFC Blackpool in the North West Counties League Premier Division.

Brent Peters’ men are stuck in the relegation places but can clamber out of the bottom two with a win this evening.

Borough failed to take advantage of playing with an extra man for half of Saturday’s game with Abbey Hey. The visitors were reduced to 10 men before the break – but the game at West View finished 0-0.
