Weather-permitting, Witton are scheduled to travel to struggling Mickleover Sports on Saturday afternoon in an Evo-Stik Premier Division fixture. The Derbyshire club find themselves in 20th position in the table going into the weekend fixtures, having won only eight league games so far this season including their victory at Wincham Park. Their last four home games have seen them suffer four defeats although they did cause a surprise when they went up to play off chasing Scarborough Athletic and came away with all three points. Sports have had a decent record against Witton in recent times, winning on both of their last two visits to Wincham Park in the league and drawing the opening game of last season at The Don Amott Arena. They have also prevailed in knocking Albion out of the Integro League Cup in recent years. Witton's form has been good in recent weeks particularly away from home and their home form has also shown signs of recovery. Games against teams at the lower end of the table have always proved difficult and should this one take place, there is every chance that this will also be the case. Kick off at The Don Amott Arena is 3pm.

UPDATE: Word from the secretary is that tomorrow’s game with @WittonAlbion Is looking very doubtful taking into account the current state of the pitch and then projected weather forecast.
We will bring you news of a pitch inspection if one is needed when we have it!
