Fears mount over Sedge's survival hopes

LIVERSEDGE’S fixture congestion gets worse by the week and their league position is not getting any better either following a 2-1 defeat away at Brigg Town last weekend, before their Tuesday night match against Retford United was called off in the Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division.

The Clayborn outfit took an early lead against fellow NCEL strugglers Brigg Town but in the 20th minute the hosts hit back through Matthew Parker.

The teams were level at the interval and after the restart both sides searched for a vital three points.

With little over 20 minutes remaining in the cagey encounter the hosts took the lead through Paul Grimes and his goal was enough to seal the win for the home side.

The defeat, followed by Tuesday’s home game being postponed, leaves Liversedge eight points adrift at the bottom of the table and with a serious mountain to climb if they are to avoid their first relegation from the NCEL Premier Division.
