Ollerton Town (A) preview

By Martin Eastwood

All arrows point to Sherwood forest as Emley seek out vital points!

AFC Emley hit the high road to Nottinghamshire on Saturday, when they travel to Ollerton Town in the Northern Counties East League Division one (3pm)
Fresh from the back of a much needed win at home to Skegness Town last week, Emley again face a crucial game against a rival in the potential relegation mix in the bottom 6, with a great chance to put a bit of daylight between themselves and the bottom 2 and ease any relegation fears they may be having.
But Ollerton are as desperate for points as Emley are, the men from Sherwood forest currently sit 16th, just a place below the Pewits, both have 26 points, but Emley's goals difference is better, giving them an extra place up on the ladder, however, up until last week's defeat to bottom side Bolsover, the Notts side had been on a good run of form, going 5 unbeaten including a win at Emley last month.
The hosts, will be looking to the double over Marlon Adams' men, after a crushing 4-1 win at the Fantastic Media Welfare Ground at the back end of December, a result which saw Emley and Joe Howson part ways.
But performances have been fairly good, despite being in the relegation mix, and last week's win over Skegness will hopefully have given Emley a lift as they head off into the Sherwood forest hoping to raid their hosts and bring the spoils back to West Yorkshire.
For anyone wanting to follow the team to the land of merry men, the address is;
Walesby Lane, Ollerton, Newark, NG22 9UT
