Sandiacre Town entertain Magdala Amateurs at St Giles.
In Division One, third placed Ravenshead travel to unbeaten table-toppers Woodthorpe Park Rangers with in form winger Adam Lewis out for a number of weeks with a knee injury. Alex Faulconbridge should return along with Liam Walton, while Mark Smallwood is rated 50/50 for the clash.
In Division Two, having risen to the summit last week on goal difference, Newark Flowserve Reserves will attempt to consolidate their position as they travel to Butt Field to play Bingham Town Reserves.
Second placed AFC Top Valley will be looking to capitalise on any slip up by Newark as they welcome Elston United to Hollinwood Lane, likewise Ruddington Village Reserves, who are the third side on 47 points, as they entertain AFC Clifton at Elms Park.
