Brent Peters’ side find themselves one off the bottom of the table having won just five games this season.

Barnoldswick Town will be hoping for a decent Boxing Day turn out at Silentnight Stadium when they host Silsden.

In Division One, leaders Nelson on are on their travels and will fancy their chances of picking up three points at mid-table Holker Old Boys.
