IMPROVING Kendal Town face a test of how far they have developed on Saturday when they host high flying Pontefract Collieries, kick off 3pm.

After recording back to back wins for the first time this season, boss Steve Edmondson's hopes of seeing his side continue their revival last Saturday were scuppered by the weather when their BetVictor League clash at Marske United was called off as the North East side's pitch was waterlogged.

And with Town inactive, they dropped a place after Runcorn Linnets' draw at Ramsbottom hoisted them above the Mintcakes on goal difference.

But they have another chance to climb the table on Saturday when they take on the promotion chasing Colls.

The West Yorkshire side will be a tough test but with the likes of loan striker Emil Jaaskelainen and locally based Joseph Dickson in good form, Town will be relishing the encounter, which is followed swiftly by another big game a week on Saturday when they travel to another high flying outfit in the shape of Marine.
