WITH a bit of luck and a helping hand from the British weather Burscough will kick-start their league campaign again on Saturday.
Having managed just two league games in January a cluttered fixture schedule awaits Derek Goulding and his side this month.
The league table is slightly skewed with the extra games in hand and the Greens now sit in 14th spot in the EvoStick North Division.
Cammel Laird, a team very much in the cluster of sides sitting in mid table, are the visitors to Victoria Park this weekend (3pm) and the Linnets will be seeking revenge after the side's last encounter earlier this season.
Ground staff are doing all they can to ensure the fixture goes ahead but Victoria Park is in a low lying area and is often susceptible to the torrid weather.
Lairds, on the other hand, have not faced such struggles and completed six games last month to keep Tony Sullivan's side fresh and without rustiness.
The last time these two met in October, Lairds edged a narrow win 2-1 at Kirklands Stadium but a reverse this time around would put the Greens just a point behind their league rivals.
Last week's rearranged Cheshire Senior Cup quarter-final against a Tranmere Rovers reserve side ended in disappointment for Burscough as they returned to action following a two week absence.
Rovers didn't take the tie lightly and included a strong line up. Despite taking the lead through Jordan Williams five minutes before half time, two late goals from Cole Stockton gifted the visitors a 2-1 victory and passage into the semi finals.
