PREVIEW | Quarter-Final Quest

Southport take on Pilkington this evening at Ruskin Drive in the Liverpool CFA Senior Cup Quarter-Final.

The Port will he looking to bounce back to winning ways after a difficult run of form in the league during the last month.

As the reigning champions of this competition, it seems like the perfect opportunity to get a much needed victory.

To reach this stage, Liam Watson’s side overcame last years runner-up, Prescot Cables, in the first round, before beating Burscough on penalties after regular time ended in a 2-2 draw.

Meanwhile, tonight’s opponents Pilkington will be looking to cause an upset.

Last season’s Cheshire League Premier Division champions, and are currently enjoying a decent campaign. This is their first season in the Liverpool Senior Cup.

Ste Palfrey’s side are currently adapting well to life in the North West Counties League Division One North, sitting in sixth place.

Nothing less than a victory will be expected from the Port tonight, and progression in this competition could act as a catalyst to get their season back on track.
