Thackley can steal a march on Albion Sports
Thackley could take advantage of neighbouring rivals’ Albion Sports’ continued involvement in the FA Cup by claiming the leadership of the Toolstation Northern Counties East Premier Division.
Thackley and Albion are the only two clubs in the division with 100 per cent starts after five league games.
The Dennyboys are joint top, trailing Albion on goal difference only.
They have the ideal opportunity to go three points clear as Saturday’s visitors Nostell MW are rock bottom following five straight defeats.
There is a similar scenario in Division One as Lee Duxbury’s table-topping Eccleshill United travel to struggling Dinnington Town, who are second-bottom.
The Eagles may be at the summit but the four clubs chasing them all have a game in hand so Duxbury’s men must keep setting the pace to stay ahead.
Back in the top tier, Liversedge will be looking to build on their first win of the season when they host Glasshoughton Welfare.
Sedge picked up three points on Bank Holiday Monday which sees them above Saturday's visitors in the table.
Silsden face a stern test in the North West Counties Premier as they host leaders Maine Road just days after a humbling defeat.
The Cobbydalers lost 3-0 at struggling Bacup & Rossendale Borough in midweek after a poor performance.
And they can expect a tougher test tomorrow as unbeaten opponents Maine Road have won six out of seven league games to sit top of the pile.
Cobbydalers defender Steve Throup is ruled out as he begins a three game ban following a sending-off against Bridlington Town.
