PREVIEW: SWPL and Western League Cornwall football preview

There is a top-of-the-table clash in the South West Peninsular League as Falmouth Town host Liskeard Athletic at Bickland Park.

Athletic still have two games in hand against Town as an opportunity to close the 14-point gap at the top was hampered by the postponement of Liskeard’s game against Dobwalls in midweek.

A win for Falmouth would put them 17 points clear with just nine matches to go as the pursuit of the SWPL Premier title continues.

Helston Athletic’s second away game on the rebound sees them travel to Bridgwater United in the Toolsstation Western League.

Helston is currently eighth in the league and is one of five tied teams with 44 points. Their opponents, Bridgwater, are fourth in the league, further underscoring the importance of this game for Massey’s side, who are aiming for a top-four finish. Three points for the Blues could take them all the way to fifth place depending on results elsewhere.

Elsewhere on the peninsula, Penryn Athletic’s home game against Godolphin has been postponed due to standing water.

There is no game for Wendron United meaning they have more time to prepare and rest for their Cornwall Senior Cup semi-final against Saltash United on Wednesday.

Fifth-placed Dobwalls could move up to fourth if they beat Launceston and other results work in their favour. St Austell are also in action as they host Bodmin.

Other fixtures for Cornwall sides in the West League see Mousehole host Bridport, the latest. The Trungle Park side will be looking to bounce back from their 3-0 loss to Exmouth Town in midweek.

Even a win for Mousheole won’t move them higher in the league with five points separating them from second place.

Saltash United are absent at Keynsham and 13th-placed Millbrook host Wellington.
