NEXT UP | Gresley (A)


It's a huge relegation derby on Saturday afternoon, as AFC take on bottom-of-the-table Gresley in a game which could realistically determine the fate of both teams.


The Bulls travel to Derbyshire on the back of a 3-1 defeat at Marske United, their second loss on the bounce, but will be motivated by the evident opportunity to gain further ground ahead of the bottom two.


Victory would widen the gap between the two teams to 11 points, meaning only Carlton in 19th could still potentially catch the Bulls.


If Carlton also fail to pick up any points, AFC would be 10 points clear of danger with 4 games left to play for Carlton.


The Bulls will also be looking to complete a league double over their Derbyshire opponents.

THE OPPOSITION


After an encouraging start to the season with what many could consider to be mid-table form, Gresley have slowly slumped to the wrong end of the East Division table.


Until last month, the Moatmen had failed to win a single league game since October, with a miserable 81 goals shipped to date and only 35 scored at the right end.


A 2-1 win at Wisbech Town gave Gresley some real hope of a potential late escape, but they will need to beat the Bulls to still have a chance of such a feat.

TEAM NEWS


Midfielder Pat Lindley continues to miss out on first-team football, with three of his five-game suspension still to play.


Besides Lindley, Mark Ward should expect to have a full team to pick from ahead of tomorrow's big game.
