THE Southern League Division One South & West fixture between Yate Town and Shortwood United is set to go ahead this afternoon (3pm).

Despite heavy rain overnight and more forecast later today, the Lodge Road pitch passed a referee's inspection this morning.

With only two other fixtures in the league currently still on, there will be plenty at stake with the winners set to jump into the play-off places.

A draw would be enough for Yate to move above North Leigh into the top five.
