Ilkeston will be looking to leapfrog visitors Halesowen in the Evo-Stik Premier Division table when the two sides meet at the New Manor Ground on Saturday.

The Robins are looking to arrest a run of form that has seen them go four games without a win, their last success being the home victory against Ramsbottom on December 5.

Halesowen, meanwhile, have only recorded one victory in their last eight games, that being a 3-0 success at Marine on January 2. Their last outing saw them beaten 1-0 at home by league leaders Blyth Spartans on Saturday.

John Hill’s men have played more games than anyone else in the division (30) and sit in tenth place on 39 points. Ilkeston are two points behind but have five games in hand.

The two sides are yet to meet this season but couldn’t be separated in the last campaign, a 2-2 draw at the New Manor Ground followed by a goalless encounter at The Grove.

When: Saturday, January 16, 2016

Where: New Manor Ground, Awsworth Road, Ilkeston, DE7 8JF.
