IT may be early in the season to talk of six pointers, but Kendal Town's BetVictor League clash at Ossett United on Saturday is certainly a vital encounter for both sides.

The home side are fourth from bottom, just one place and one point above the Mintcakes, and Steve Edmondson's aide will be desperate to get something from the game as they look to climb away from the relegation zone.

Hopes that Town could bag a vital three points last Saturday were torpedoed by the weather when a late inspection put paid to the home league clash against City of Liverpool FC.

But with drier weather forecast for the weekend, the game is West Yorkshire is set to go ahead.
