Hallam take on Shirebrook Town at Sandygate where manager Chris Sellars is looking forward to taking on the challenge of the promotion hopefuls, who last week appointed Mark Camm and Danny Bacon as their new management team after parting company with Kevin Gee.

The Countrymen go into the game third from bottom of Division One but have lost just twice in the last seven outings and Sellars said:“ We had a good game at their place earlier in the season and although we lost 2-0,we played really well and were unlucky to come away empty handed.

“They had a good team but things have not gone as expected andwe have improved since then so it will be an interesting test for us.”

Shirebrook have slipped to sixth, eight points adrift of the top two.

Parkgate go to sixth-placed Retford United looking to build on an excellent 3-0 home win over Brighouse Town which ended a run of five defeats.

Maltby Main welcome Premier Division leaders Tadcaster Albion to Muglet Lane with both teams in form. Albion have won four of the last five, but the Miners have been in solid home form,winning three out of fourr.

Worksop Parramore face a testing trip to in-form Heanor Town who have won the last four. Staveley host second in the table Barton Town Old Boys where James Colliver’s men will be hoping to end a run of four defeats.

Armthorpe Welfare seek revenge for a 2-1 loss in October when they visit Long Eaton United hopingfor their first game in almost a month after three postponements.
