Promotion-chasing Ilkeston FC will kick off their Evo-Stik Premier Division campaign at home to Skelmersdale United.

Ilkeston were agonisingly beaten in last season’s play-off final and will be hoping to go one stage better this time out.

The club has seen a change of manager with Gavin Strachan taking charge of the side.

So far pre-season has gone well for Strachan’s men with a 4-0 win over Peterborough United offering the fans plenty of encouragement.
