Emley hope to kick start play off push


AFC Emley welcome Dronfield Town to the Fantastic Media Welfare Ground on Saturday, looking to get their play off push back underway.
Dronfield, who are currently in 17th spot in the league, to Emley's 11th, but have some good recent form behind them, having only lost once in their last 7 league outings, and that was a 4-3 defeat at 2nd placed Eccleshill, some of their recent results are impressive, 1-1 with Yorkshire Amateur in their last outing, 3-1 V Campion and 4-1 away to Hallam.

So a tough ask for Emley, who will want to pick up after their recent 4-1 defeat away to Yorkshire Amateur and get back on the quest for a play off spot, which was boosted by 4 points over Play off hopefuls themselves, Glasshoughton Welfare.
Despite seeing their county cup hopes dashed at Penistone on Wednesday, Emley showed some good spirit and battled well for most of that game.
But the Derbyshire outfit will be no push overs, however Emley will be confident of getting a good win to boost their hopes,of staying on the coat tails of the leading pack.
