The Ravens finish the season with a home fixture against Corby Town

Coalville bring their league season to a close on Saturday when they host Corby Town in what is a vital game for the Northamptonshire side with Corby needing a win to be 100 percent sure of survival.

Corby currently sit in 20th place, 1 place above the relegation zone on 46 points. Sutton Coldfield in 21st place and also have 46 points but Corby are 10 goals better off on goal difference. Sutton Coldfield make the trip to Workington on Saturday.

The Steelmen are expected to bring a large following as they battle to avoid relegation.

To say thanks to the Coalville supporters and welcome the visitors all draught beers, Carling, IPA and Thatcher's cider will be discounted to £2.80 per pint between 12.30pm and 2.30pm in Jacks Bar at the ground.

Assistant Manager Mark Harvey previews the game:

''Firstly, a huge Coalville welcome to all our visitors from Corby. Saturday sees a match that probably has both teams pitched in reverse roles from what many would of predicted at the start of the season. Coalville were definitely most people's favorites to go down this season outside of Coalville and Corby would I’m sure of expected to be well clear of relegation on the final day.

For whatever reason things haven’t worked out as expected for Corby but they visit us, needing victory to be certain of survival if results go against them elsewhere. They will get no favours off us but I wish them all the best today and in the future.

From our point of view, we set out our first ever season at level 3 wanting to stay in the division, its been a turbulent season from myself and Tommy's point of view with many squad changes to ensure our goal during the season, but we got there in the end with a few games remaining and are delighted with the progress we’ve made in the time we have been involved with Coalville. We are already working on continuing that progress into next season.

On behalf of all our players and staff, I would like to thank the Chairman, Mick Jordan, Steve Cartwright plus every single person behind the scenes who have given us their full support all season long.

Finally a massive thank you to the supporters who have been outstanding in their support home and away, we look forward to seeing you all next season, hopefully with a few more joining you on the terraces''

Kick off for the game is 3:00pm.

Admission prices are £10.00 for Adults, £7.00 for Concessions and £1.00 for Juniors.
