NEXT UP | Frickley Athletic (H)

Saturday sees the final game of the season as the Bulls host mid-table Frickley at the Forest Town Arena.

Relegated AFC responded well to a heavy defeat to Stamford last weekend by putting two past lowly Carlton without response on Easter Monday, pushing them 12 points clear of the mathematical bottom two.

The Bulls will be hoping to end a strange debut season in the Evo-Stik League on a high, and also to secure a second league double in the space of six days.

A win could mean the Bulls finish in 14th by leapfrogging Stocksbridge Park Steels, if their Sheffield counterparts fail to pick up any points on Saturday.



It's not quite been the season that Frickley hoped for back in August, as the Blues couldn't improve on a third-place finish in the old South Division last season.

Their campaign for the play-offs ended quite some time ago, with Frickley currently 18 points adrift of the East Division's top five.

With the Blues never within the reach of the threat of relegation, the last few weeks of the season have all been about pride and earning as strong a finish as possible, as they hope to overtake Stamford on the final day of the season and finish top of the bottom half of the table.



Cameron Dear returns to the side alongside Pat Lindley, who completed his five-game suspension after Easter Monday's victory at Carlton.

Defender Julian Lawrence misses the final game of the season through injury, hoping to make a return in pre-season.
