COLNE boss Steve Cunningham insists his side will be going out 'as if they are playing Barcelona' as they aim to secure the North West Counties League Premier Division title at 1874 Northwich tomorrow.

A victory for Colne would clinch the title and secure a place in the Evo-Stik League Division One North for next season.

A draw would be enough for Steve Cunningham's side providing Runcorn Linnets do not beat Padiham by six clear goals while the Reds will be up regardless of their result if Linnets fail to win.

But Cunningham is taking no chances ahead of the trip.

"We will be going out as if we are playing Barcelona or Real Madrid," he said. "We know they are a tough team with a lot of talented players but we also know if we do our job and win the game then we win the league.

"It is a game to be excited about.

"If someone had offered me this at the start of the season I would have taken it."

Colne are set to be backed by a travelling army of fans at Northwich with more than 150 set to descend on the Barton Stadium.

And Cunningham is hoping the Reds supporters, who have a Men United Cup final with Atherton Collieries at Fleetwood Town's ground on Tuesday still to look forward to, can make all the difference.

He said: "It is a very well supported club and the lads have chipped in to cover the cost of a coach for supporters so it will feel like a home game for us. I am sure they will be keeping an eye on the Linnets score and hopefully they can be celebrating at the end of the game."

The Reds will be without the suspended Jay Hart and Dean Stott for the clash.

League glory would secure a double for the club after Colne reserves won the Galaxy Lancashire League title.
