Stoke City will go above Burnley into second spot in the Northern Premier if they avoid defeat at Derby County.

There’s a basement battle in the Southern Premier as winless pair Chichester City and Hounslow go head-to-head.

Wolves are two points better off than their closest rivals for the Division 1 Midlands title, with also a game in hand on Birmingham and West Midlands, while Lincoln City will climb three places to third if they defeat Leafield Athletic.

Bolton Wanderers welcome Chester le Street Town with only a goal between the Division 1 North mid-table pair.

Either Exeter City or Chesham United could go third in Division 1 South West with a positive result, the Grecians are at Swindon Town and the Generals at home to Poole Town.
