Parkgate will look to put their FA Vase exit behind them when they return to league action with the visit of managerless Hall Road Rangers to Roundwood tomorrow.

Martin Thacker resigned as player-manager of Rangers after three months in charge following his side’s 2-2 draw with Armthorpe Welfare earlier in the week. Rangers beat Parkgate 2-0 at Dene Park in an FA Cup tie earlier in the season but the Steelmen were later reinstated after Rangers fielded an ineligible player.

Armthorpe Welfare take on Nostell MW at Church Street in search of a first league win in four games. It will be the third meeting between the two teams this season with both sides having won one each.

After their 4-0 FA Vase success over Squires Gate, Staveley will hope for a return to winning ways in the league at Thackley. The Miners have picked up just one point from the last nine available.

Bottom of the table Maltby Main face a crunch game at Pickering Town. The Miners are five points adrift of Pickering and safety and know they can ill afford to allow the North Yorkshire side to open up an eight point cushion.

Retford United travel to Liversedge level on points with leaders Scarborough Athletic, who face a tricky looking away trip to Barton Town.

In Division One, Handsworth will be expected to pick up all three points at home against bottom of the table Appleby Frodingham as Russ Eagles men look to revive their promotion hopes.

Dinnington Town face a big ask at second-placed Albion Sports, who boast a hundred percent home league record, while third bottom Dinnington are without a win in four away.

Hallam go into their clash at Bottesford Town after a 4-1 away win over joint leaders Pontefract on Tuesday.

Bottesford won 4-2 at Sandygate Road in October but such is the hosts’ poor home record, seven defeats from 11, the Blues will feel they can come away with another positive result.

Worsbrough Bridge Athletic aim to stretch their unbeaten away run to four games at Yorkshire Amateur, who they recently beat 7-1 at Park Road.

Rossington Main host Worksop Parramore looking to complete a league double over the leaders.

Askern Villa can climb out of the bottom two with a home win over Louth Town.
