After taking just three points from the last 12, Sheffield will look to get their promotion bid back on track when they take on Chasetown at Dronfield tomorrow.

Club have slipped to seventh in Division One South, 19 points behind the leaders Coalville Town but with three games in hand.

With three of the next four games at home, assistant manager Chris Adam knows Sheffield need to make the most of that as they look to bounce back from a 4-1 loss at Stamford. “After coming off the back of a good win against Northwich Victoria we were nowhere near out best at Stamford which was disappointing,” said Adam.

”We now have a few home games coming up which gives us the chance to string a few results together. It’s important that we get three points on Saturday and kick-on from there.

“When teams come here they raise their game,” said Adam. “But we have to deal with that, it is up to us to set a good tempo and get teams on the back foot from the start. We have lots of ability and are creating lots chances, what we must do is start to put more of those chances away so that we can get a couple of goals in front which will help us relax and play our football.”

Stocksbridge Park Steels travel to fellow strugglers Kendal Town in what is a six-pointer.

Steels slumped to the bottom of the table following the 3-0 loss against Ashton but are just three points behind 19th-placed Kendal. Manager Darren Schofield is hoping to have brought in a new striker in time to make the trip with Nathan Joynes injured.

Frickley Athletic take on eighth in the table Nantwich Town at Westfield Lane boosted by a 6-2 thrashing of Worksop Town in the Senior Cup. Worksop Town are in FA Trophy action with a trip to Blue Square North high flyers Chester FC in the third qualifying round.

Matlock Town have home advantage over another Blues Square North side with Stalybridge Celtic. Buxton travel to Stamford.
