Oldham (and probably Hibs) visit Wigan in top of the table battle
It's tough at the top - they say...
But to hell we'll settle for it.
A massive game at th'athletics stadium against Oldham Town becomes even more important as rivals AFC Liverpool and Bootle play the league's bottom two - Rochdale Town and Ashton Town respectively. A win is a must.
That said Oldham are a decent team that looked good going forward in the game at their gaff a couple of weeks ago. They'll also be smarting after the Robins took away their home league record and not a little miffed about the sending-off.
It should be a cracking game. Whilst WRP haven't hit the giddy heights of scoring six a game they've manage to grind out the results and despite being ravaged with injuries have kept it pretty solid at the back.
Usual procedure: 3pm kick off, £3.50 in and £1.50 for the programme.
So if anybody wants to watch good, hard, competitive football then WN5 is the postcode to be seen in this Saturday
Meanwhile here's a summary of the Robins remaining fixtures - sort of
As it stands at the moment

THREE GAMES STILL TO BE ARRANGED
Stone Dominoes (H)
21 Mar 2009
Both Stone and Daisy Hill have no game that day
25 Apr 2009
Eccleshall have no game that day
9 May 2009 - this weekend is set aside for final games I believe. So could play either of three then but common sense would suggest:
21 Mar Stone (H) or Daisy Hill (A)
25 Apr Eccleshall (A)
9 May Stone (H) or Daisy Hill (A)
Then again all that doesn't take into account other games that Stone, Eccleshall and Daisy Hill have to play... So who knows
* Not sure if they'll have Hibs with em
