Local football: Barrow Town can afford few slips in the East Midlands Counties League
Barrow Town can afford few slips between now and the end of the season if they are to land a first EMCL crown.
Only goal difference separates them and leaders Basford United as the finishing straight approaches.
Town banked three points last week with a vital win at Blaby & Whetstone Athletic and they travel again tomorrow to face a Radford side who are facing a fight to avoid relegation.
Basford, meanwhile, will not have an easy time at home to Thurnby Nirvana, who still have their sights on finishing in the top five.

Defeat by Barrow last week was a major blow to Blaby's title ambitions and their task now will be hold on to a top-three slot with Borrowash Victoria breathing down their necks.
Athletic host Gedling Miners Welfare, while Borrowash travel to Aylestone Park for what could be the game of the day.
Park are fifth at the moment and have enjoyed a solid first season in the league.
However, they won't want to let it slip now and will be determined to finish around the top four.
At the other end of the table, Ibstock United visit St Andrews with both sides needing the points.
United remain at the foot of the chart, but the Andrews do not have a great deal of breathing space after failing to register a victory in their last five games.
There should be plenty of entertainment when Lutterworth Athletic host Holwell Sports.
Neither side is lacking in front of goal with the likes of Danny Laywood and Scott Mooney around. However, neither is exactly watertight at the back.
Anstey Nomads make the trip to Graham St Prims, while Bardon Hill Sports, who are going strong on the League Cup front, look to cement their position in the top half of the chart by picking up a good result at Holbrook.
