Parkgate aim to beat leaders

Have your say

THE top game in the league tomorrow is at Green Lane where second-placed Parkgate entertain leaders Bridlington Town in what has all the makings of a cracking contest.

Just a single point separates the two in-form teams, Bridlington are unbeaten in eight since their opening day 3-2 reversal at Maltby Main, while Parkgate have won six and drawn on of their last seven league outings.

The two sides also boast three of the division’s leading scorers with the Steelmen’s Ashley Worsfold and Chris Wood having bagged 11 each along with the Seasiders Josh Greening.

A draw would allow third-placed Retford United to go top if they take all three points at home to struggling Maltby.

The form book suggests that will be the case with the Badgers having lost just once in 10, while the Miners are without a win in nine.

Armthorpe Welfare look to end their home duck against Brighouse Town. Despite enjoying success in both the FA Cup and FA Vase at Church Street, Des Bennett’s side have not won at home in the league after four attempts.

In Division One, Hallam will be hoping to upset high-riding Glasshoughton Welfare at Sandygate.

The Blues have lost the last three on the spin in all outings and are now out of every knockout competition after losing 3-2 at home against Teversal in the Wilkinson Sword Trophy on Wednesday.

Hallam will be without playmaker Ben Kistell, who starts a three-match suspension.

Dinnington Town will hope to end a run of six home league games without a win when they entertain Teversal. Steve Toyne’s have shown a steady improvement and are unbeaten in the last three, while Teversal have won their last two of which both were against Hallam.

Handsworth host AFC Emley. It will be the third meeting between the two teams this season.

Handsworth knocked Emley out of the Presidents Cup 1-0 at Olivers Mount before losing out in the Wilkinson Sword Trophy at Emley 4-3 on penalties.

Elsewhere, Worsbrough Bridge Athletic go in search of a third away win on the spin at Pontefract Collieries, while leaders Worksop Parramore will aim to hold onto top spot by making it seven without defeat away at mid-table Grimsby Borough.
