The caretaker boss is aware that his team are heavy underdogs for the game, but hopes his players are able to build some momentum after an impressive win away at Heanor Town last Tuesday, writes Daniel McInally.

“Obviously it’s going be a huge task. They’re top of the league and playing really well,” he said.

“They recently beat Bromsgrove Sporting, who were first , so we know the challenge we face.”

Consistency has been a problem in recent weeks for Palmer’s side, but the boss feels that if they can get anything from the game it will stand them in good stead for the rest of the season.

“Our win on Tuesday impressed me, and I hope we can use it as motivation for this big game.”

The manager situation finally seems closer to getting resolved as the club plans on interviewing for the vacant position soon.

“After this week, we will have a meeting and we’re going to finalise our list of applicants,” said Palmer.

Elsewhere in the Premier Division, Lye Town host South Normanton Athletic, who sit two places below bottom of the table Rocester.


Division One leaders Walsall Wood are heading to struggling Brocton.

Stafford Town will look to pick up a vital three points as they aim to move away from the bottom of the table.

Town are without a point in three games and take on middle of the pack Lichfield City.
