Derby day for Silsden

It’s derby day this afternoon with Colne making the 12-mile journey over the border to the Asda Foundation Stadium, 3pm.
It is the week’s only match involving Keighley-area teams and is sure to attract a bumper crowd with fans eager to to end their action drought.
After a three-match winning run at the start of November, Silsden have failed to pick up maximum points since, with two draws and three defeats, scoring just one goal in their last four outings.
The visitors, meanwhile, have been kicking their heels due to postponements since a 3-1 win at Congleton on December 10.
They are in the midst of a run of away games, not having played at Holt House in the league since a 3-2 win over Flixton on Bonfire Night, seven weeks ago.
Last season the teams drew 0-0 in Colne with the return coming in a week to forget for Silsden. They crashed 7-1 at Glossop on the Saturday before meeting Colne four days later and losing 4-0.
* Pitch inspection 11am.
