Handsworth almost there

Have your say

Division One leaders Handsworth go to Glasshoughton Welfare knowing that they are all but mathematically promoted following the hosts 4-0 midweek home defeat against Rossington Main.

Glasshoughton in fourth are 12 points behind Russ Eagles’ side with four games to play with a hugely inferior goal difference and with third placed Albion Sports nine points adrift of the leaders with two games to play, the Olivers Mount outfit are all but guaranteed a top two finish.

Handsworth, who have a six point lead over Worksop Parramore in second, will now want to push on and clinch the championship.

Parramores will aim to keep the pressure on with a win at Louth Town in their final away game of the season.

Dinnington host Askern Villa and will be looking to make it five wins on the spin that could see them climb into the top 10 if other results go their way. Villa have lost five of the last six away but comprehensively beat Dinnington 4-0 in the reverse fixture in November when player/assistant manager Mark Vickerage hit hat-trick.

Worsbrough Bridge Athletic bring the curtain down on their home campaign with the visit of seventh-placed Eccleshill United to Park Road. Briggers are on course for a top eight finish and qualification for the Presidents Cup.

AFC Emley, up to 11th after taking 16 points from the last 18, host Pontefract Colleries.

Maltby Main entertain Lincoln Moorlands Railway in a relegation showdown. A win for Steve Adams side would lift them out of the drop zone.

Maltby stretched their unbeaten run to five games with a 3-1 win over Parkgate in the last outing.

Staveley MW return to action against leaders Bridlington Town at Inkersall Road following Monday’s debacle against Barton Town OB. The game was abandoned after 59 minutes by the referee with the visitors leading 6-0 amid allegations that the Miners management team were to blame for abandonment claiming the pitch unplayable.

Parkgate should pick up all three points in their final away game of the season at rock bottom Selby Town as Doug Shelley’s side look to cement their top six placing.

Second-placed Retford United could go back to the top of the table with a win over Nostell MW if Bridlington slip up at Staveley.

Armthorpe Welfare are away to Scarborough Athletic following on from Mondays 2-1 defeat at Bridlington.
