Improving Dinnington Town will aim to make it four straight league wins and six without defeat when they host Rossington Main at Phoenix Park.

Steve Toyne’s men have taken 13 points from the last 15 to move up to 15th in Division One helped by their talisman striker Liam Cartledge’s four goals in the last five outings.

Opponents Rossington have already clocked up seven away wins and will be keen to respond from a 5-1 home defeat at the hands of Hallam in the last outing.

Worsbrough Bridge Athletic should bounce back from last week’s 2-1 home reversal against Dinnington by beating Askern Villa, who are second from bottom having taken just one point from the last eight. The Briggers lost the reverse fixture 3-2 at Manor Way.

Hallam face a tough trip to second placed Gasshoughton Welfare, who have lost just one in 11 at home. Hallam have won the last two away and beat Glasshoughton 2-1 at Sandygate in October with goals from Craig Getliff and 15-goal Liam Morris.

Handsworth aim to continue their promotion push at Eccleshill United after winning their last three to move up to third.

Worksop Parramore though are still very much in the race for the Premier Division and will be expected to win at rock bottom Appleby Frodingham, who were thumped 6-1 at Sandy Lane.

AFC Emley aim to stretch their run to just one defeat in the last six when they entertain Teversal.

In the Premier Division, Parkgate go to Barton Town OB, who are smarting from a 8-1 drubbing at Green Lane last September when Nathan Forbes-Swindells and Ashley Worsfold both hit hat-tricks. The hosts have improved since and go into the game unbeaten in the last seven at home.

Fourth-placed Staveley MW look to keep the pressure on the three teams above them when they go to Hall Road Rangers Welfare will certainly be in buoyant mood after their tremendous 3-1 FA Vase triumph in Devon last weekend.

Maltby Main take on Thackley at Muglet Lane where they need to return to winning ways if they are to have any hope of avoiding relegation. The Miners have lost the last three leaving them six points adrift of safety.

Armthorpe face lowly Long Eaton United aiming to make it four home wins on the spin.
