Bishop travel to West Allotment for another big game in the Northern League, Division One, for the boys in blue.

Still in 17th, Bishop need points to ensure their safety, especially after losing out on five points in the last two games.

West Allotment are currently 14th in the table and have only got 2 points from their last three league games.

Skipper Jamie Poole said: “The moral is good still and the team all believe we can do this we just all need to stick together.

“The support is always amazing home and away and fans just need to keep getting behind us in these hard times, yes it’s frustrating and times you must be thinking what is this! But please don’t give up as the fans are what the lads need.”

Bishop have recently signed defender, Brandon Taylor, on loan till the end of the season.
