SHEFFIELD entertain newly-promoted Kings Lynn Town FC which sees the first league meeting between the two clubs.

The visitors re-launched in 2010 playing in the UCL Premier Division under the new name of Kings Lynn Town FC after the original Kings Lynn were wound up by the High Courts over debts owed to the HMRC.

It looks to be a tough test of Club’s promotion credentials with the Linnets having made a good start to the season, winning all three league and cup outings to date.

Sheffield have picked up four points from their opening three games but have yet to win at the BT Local Business Stadium with the only other home game ending in a 2-1 defeat against Loughborough Dynamo.

Stocksbridge Park Steels make the short trip to Worksop Town for a game where both teams will be desperate to come away with all three-points after in-different start to the new campaign.

Steels are yet to win this season after four attempts and manager Chris Willcock could give a start to former Tigers striker Kevin Sanasy.

Worksop have fared little better, winning just one of their opening four games, losing recently 3-0 at Grantham Town.

Struggling Frickley Athletic travel to surprise early Premier Division leaders Ashton United.

The Blues are still looking to register their first point of the season and are kept off the foot of the table on goal- difference above Eastwood Town, who along with Whitby Town are the only three teams in the top flight still without a point.

Ashton boast maximum points from their four league outings and top the table on goal difference ahead of Marine and Rushall Olympic, who also have 100 per cent league records.

Matlock Town have been hit with an injury crisis with up to nine players ruled out of the trip to Stafford Rangers.

James Ashmore, Ben Algar, Micky Harcourt, Laurence Gaughan, Lewis McMahon, Kris Bowler, Liam Wilkin, Gareth Davies and Bradley Grayson all sidelined, leaving manager Mark Atkins’ squad down to the bare bones.

Buxton will aim to make it three wins on the spin at the expense of newly-promoted Witton Albion at the Silverlands after taking maximum points from their games against Whitby Town at home and Stocksbridge away over the Bank Holiday weekend.

The visitors, however, have made a bright start to the season and head into the game unbeaten in their four league outings that included a win at Chorley and a draw at Worksop Town in their previous two away trips.
