Spartans face a Skelmersdale side bereft of time to try and save themselves from relegation. Spartans ran out comfortable winners back in January winning 4-1 at Stormy Corner; Dan Maguire, Luke Armstrong, Ryan Hutchinson and Adam Wrightson all grabbed a goal.
Blyth Spartans recovered from a two goal deficit on Saturday to record a 2-2 draw at Buxton. Dan Maguire grabbed both goals as he closed in on Luke Benbow at the top of the scoring charts.
Skelmersdale faced Barwell on Saturday and suffered a 5-0 defeat before succumbing to a 3-1 loss to Sutton Coldfield Town on Tuesday evening.
Blyth approach the game knowing that 7 victories from their final 9 games will be enough to seal the title and promotion to the Vanarama National League North.
