Two of our region’s teams are in pole position for promotion with Handsworth top of Division One and six points ahead of Worksop Parramore who have two games in hand.

Handsworth are enjoying an incredible run of form as Russ Eagle’s side head into the home clash against Worsbrough Bridge on the back of 10 straight league wins.

With six games remaining Handsworth know the Championship is within touching distance.

However, Worsbrough are likely to pose a real threat, being unbeaten in the last five and taking 13 points from 15.

Dinnington Town can give Handsworh a helping hand by beating promotion rivals Glasshoughton Welfare.

Only a fortnight ago that Town were beaten 3-1 at Glasshoughton, a game in which Dinnington boss Steve Toyne refereed to the West Yorkshire sides actions that day as “Nothing less than disgraceful.” Town will no doubt be seeking to make amends by avenging the defeat and end a run of three defeats on the bounce following a 1-0 midweek reversal against Louth Town

Askern Villa entertain Teversal who will be seeking to bounce back from a 3-2 defeat at Parramore on Tuesday.

Rossington Main travel to fifth-placed Pontefract Collieries who will be eager to get their promotion push back on track after suffering back-to back defeats.

After their extraordinary 6-4 league cup victory over Hall Road Rangers in mid-week it’s back to the bread and butter of league business for Parkgate and the visit of Brighouse Town to Green Lane.

The Steelmen’s title hopes appear to be over following the 4-1 defeat at Staveley last weekend which left them 10-points behind leaders Bridlington Town However, with 24-points still to play for Parkgate will not give up hope and with the Steelmen in such hot form at home where they have won the last 11 in all competitions they will be confident of victory.

Retford United should make it five wins on the spin against lowly Hall Road Ranger at Cannon Park.

Armthorpe Welfare should return to winning ways against bottom of the table Selby Town at Church Street. Des Bennett’s men have lost the last three on the bounce but Selby go into the game wit 17 defeats in the last 18 outings.

Relegation threatened Maltby Main could move to within a point of safety with a win at Liversedge.
