CLITHEROE went into this game knowing only a win would do, to maintain their title challenge.

Captain William Slipper steadied the nerves early on with a quickfire double, and Oli Hunter added a third before the break.

As Lloyd Hitchen cooly controlled the defence, Joe Llewellyn made it four shorlty after half-time.

Bacup rallied and got two goals back but the result was never in doubt.

Tyler High was man of the match.

With only one game remaining, Wolves know a victory will complete a remarkable season, with the league title.

The side are at Edisford School tomorrow, kick-off 11-15 a.m.
