Going into the final two games of the season, the Scholars sit in 19th – the final relegation spot – a point behind Whitby Town and two adrift of Stocksbridge Park Steels, but both have a game in hand on Chris Brindley’s men.

Chasetown will be hopeful of overcoming already relegated basement boys Burscough on the final day of the season, but know that a win against North Ferriby United tomorrow (April 14) will be crucial if they bid to avoid the drop.

Attention will also be on Stocksbridge’s clash at Worksop, while Whitby will fancy their chances against Burscough.

However, a defeat for the Scholars could mean that their season will be beyond saving come 5pm if their two survival rivals both earn victories.

The omens are promising for Chasetown though, after they were pegged back in the second half of their 1-1 draw in the away fixture last month.

Kick-off at the Scholars Ground is at 3pm.
