In the Nottinghamshire Senior League Premier Division, leaders Southwell City surrendered their 100% record last week at the hands of Awsworth Villa. City will attempt to get back on track with a trip to The Strand to face Attenborough, while Villa will try to capitalise on any further slips by Southwell to leapfrog into top spot if they get a favourable result against Bingham Town at The Shilo.
Cotgrave could actually be in first place before either of those matches if they win against Magdala Amateurs at Woodview on Friday evening. Also in action under Friday night lights are Sandiacre Town, who welcome Radcliffe Olympic to St Giles.
Stapleford Town are another team whose 100% record went last week. They will look to make amends as they make the trip to Eagle Valley to play bottom club Gedling Southbank.
Calverton Miners Welfare welcome Scott Miles, Harry Simpson and Barry Payne back into the squad for the visit of Aslockton & Orston to Hollinwood Lane, as they look to arrest a run of three defeats in all competitions.
FC Cavaliers and Bilborough Town meet at The Forest.
After a heart-breaking extra-time defeat in the Nottinghamshire FA Trophy last weekend, Division Two leaders Woodthorpe Park Rangers are again in knock-out action, this time the NSL Senior Cup. They travel to the WSA to face Premier Division side Wollaton.
Division One Ravenshead will also be looking to cause an upset as they head to Platt Lane to take on Keyworth United. Mark Yates will be rested for the Reds. Captain Josh Broad and midfielder Adam Martin are both likely to return to the side, however, while Joe Maguire faces a late fitness test.
Second placed Bridgford United and third placed Basford United Community will look to take advantage of Woodthorpe being in cup action as they host Mansfield Hosiery Mills at Highfields and travel to Southwell City Reserves’ War Memorial Ground respectively.
In Division Two, Ravenshead Reserves could field up to six 16 year olds in their game against Cotgrave Reserves at Woodview. They also have the returning Lee Pinner (holiday) and Jamie Simons (injury) available.
Unbeaten so far, AFC Clifton hope that continues in the NSL Junior Cup as they travel to Roko to play Magdala Amateurs Reserves. Jordan Sharpe returns for Clifton after a ban and top scorer Connor Boulton will be looking to add to his nine goals from nine games so far.
