With Premier Division supported by Sportsform league leaders Shillington sitting the afternoon out, second place AFC Kempston Town & Bedford College would draw level on points with them should they retain their 100% home ways with a victory over the visiting Wootton Blue Cross.

Should they lose then Town would drop to third spot if Lidlington United Sports gained the maximum three points from their home Hurst Grove encounter against bottom of the table Sharnbrook, who will hit the road still looking for their first away win of the season.

Over at Harvey Close where hosts Caldecote have lost their last two home encounters the visitors are a Wilstead side that has been beaten just once on the road all season.

Whilst at their Playing Field headquarters, AFC Oakley Sports M&DH look to retain their seasons unbeaten home ways when visited by Flitwick Town.

The final top flight action sees Marston Shelton Rovers look to end a run of five games without a win when called upon at their Playing Field headquarters by Renhold United.

In Division One for league leaders Sundon Park Rangers, in search of their fifth win on the bounce, it’s a trip to Woodlands to take on Brickhill Tigers.

With second place Goldington’s Alexander Sports Centre base unavailable they have agreed to switch their home encounter with Henlow to their opposition’s Groveside headquarters.

With Goldington unbeaten on the road this season and Henlow winners of their last six league games only time will tell if their bravely pays off. For third place AFC Turvey who trail Goldington by just a single point its the defence of their seasons unbeaten home record at Stonefields against a Elstow Abbey side who hit the road looking to end a run of three consecutive defeats which has seen them drop into the bottom half of the league table.

Over at Weston Park where fourth place Eastcotts AFC are still unbeaten this season the visitors are second from bottom of the table Luton Boys Seniors who have failed to win any of their last nine outings. Whilst for bottom of the table Bromham United its the quest of a first home win of the season when called upon by Marabese Ceramics.

Other action coming at Rectory Road, the venue at which Shefford Town & Campton Reserves entertain a Sandy side who have lost its last two away outings and at Grange Road, Bedford Sports Athletic following two consecutive defeats plays hosts to the visiting Woburn Lions who come looking for their first victory since a home success over Elstow Abbey some eight games ago.
