MALTBY Main host fellow strugglers Pickering Town knowing three points would take them out of the bottom two at the expense of their visitors.

Steve Adams men ended a run 19 league games without a win with a victory at Pickering last weekend that resulted in the North Yorksh club parting company with manager Peter Vasey and assistant Mike Morton.

Parkgate go in search of a fourth successive league win at Hall Road Rangers, who have lost three of the last four including a 4-2 reversal against the Steelmen last week. Although Doug Shelley’s men are nine points adrift of leaders Retford, they have games in hand on all teams above them.

Armthorpe Welfare go to Nostell Miners Welfare where the hosts will still be smarting from a 6-1 thrashing at Church Street a week ago.

It will be Armthorpe’s third visit of the season to Middle Lane. Des Bennett’s side were knocked out of the League Cup 5-2 by Nostell in August, but returned to gain revenge in the FA Cup.

In the First Division, Dinnington Town will aim to give their band of loyal followers an early Christmas present with a rare home over Bottesford Town.

Town have endured a difficult first half of the season winning just once in 10 league outings at home, which sees them third from bottom of the table. Bottesford beat Dinnington 3-1 back in September.

Worsbrough Bridge Athletic should beat rock bottom Appleby Frodingham. The Briggers will be aiming to bounce back from a first defeat in eight when beaten 3-2 at home by Teversal in the last outing.

Promotion hopefuls Handsworth go in search of an eighth away win of the campaign at Teversal. Russ Eagle’s men are sixth but only three points behind leaders Worksop Parramore, who are without a game this weekend. So Handswosrth have the opportunity to go level one points with one of their close rivals.
