KNUTSFORD FC host Egerton this evening with much at stake.

Reds, who also host Eagle Sports on Thursday to complete their season, need all the points they can muster in their bid to avoid relegation.

A fourth win on the trot at the weekend keeps their hopes alive, though their survival in the Cheshire Football League Premier Division is also dependant on results elsewhere.

They head into the derby with Egerton, kick-off 6.45pm, third from bottom with 27 points from 32 games, while behind them are Billinge with 24 from 27 and Daten with 22 from 31.

Egerton, meanwhile, are aiming to cling on to second place but have Broadheath and Lostock Gralam breathing down their necks.

Knutsford's fourth win on the spin was a 3-2 home success against Garswood United.

Nick Ward's men started strongly and went 1-0 up after three minutes.

Brotherton found Potts wide left and the full-back crossed well to Pemberton who slotted home

Reds doubled their lead on 21 minutes when Jackson fed Pilling who fired his shot into the net.

But the advantage did not last long.

Garswood pressed and from a free kick wide right the ball flew into the goal.

When Potts was adjudged to have intentionally handled the ball in the box in the 38th minute the visitors got back on to level terms.

To the neutral it looked like one goal in the second half would determine the result and so it proved.

Garswood crept into the ascendency in a competitive game and Knutsford were forced to look for counter attacks.

Jackson drove across the pitch from the right and found sub Hadfield who smashed home an unstoppable winner in the 80th minute.

Could Knutsford manage the game out for the much needed 3 points?

Garswood sub Bell had a great chance to equalise but his free header at the far post hit the bar and out.

Note that Knutsford will stage a memorial game in honour of Dave Jenyons, who died from Covid 19 in January 2021, on May 8, kick-off 11.30am.

The match will feature ex-players.
