BRADFORD bumper derby fever continues at the weekend, and this time it's football's turn.

There was fun to be had in rugby league last week with two huge local rivalries coming to a head, but now it's derby day in the Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division.

Thackley will hope to bounce from Wednesday night's loss to seventh-placed Staveley Miners Welfare with a quickfire response when they host Liversedge for the second time in three games.

Neither team has troubled the upper half of the table much this season, but with relegation a non issue this could make for a free-flowing, entertaining derby.

Fellow Premier Division side Albion Sports mathematically confirmed safety from relegation in a midweek 3-0 win at Athersley Recreation, who they leapfrogged into 16th in the process.

They now face Garforth Town at the weekend with no pressure on their shoulders and could overtake their opponents with a victory.

Further up the table, Eccleshill United will hope for good fortunes in a trip to the seaside to face Bridlington Town, who may well have optimistic eyes on a top two finish.

Campion are running out of games to keep apace in the promotion chase at the top of the Toolstation Northern Counties East League Division One.

Their next game could prove vital at home to top-of-the-table Grimsby Borough, with second-placed Hallam facing a significantly easier challenge when visiting mid-table East Yorkshire Carnegie.

In one of only three weekend fixtures in the Hallmark Security League Premier Division, 12th-placed Silsden host Padiham at The Cobbydale Construction Stadium.

It's a welcome return to action for the home side who have only played one match in just over a month.

That was a 0-0 draw against 1874, so Silsden will hope to get back to winning ways on Saturday and try end the season on a high with a good run of form going into the final six fixtures.

In the division below, it will be a third successive home game in two weeks for Steeton when they come up against league strugglers Daisy Hill.

Cougar Park hasn't experienced much football joy over the course of the season, with only five home wins for Steeton.

The hosts need a victory after a poor run of form, that has seen them lose four out of their last five, to ensure they don't end the campaign with a whimper.

This might be their best opportunity to begin an end of season run, as Daisy Hill have only managed one win in all their away matches this season.

It's still tight at the top of the Evo-Stik League Premier Division with eight games to go for Farsley Celtic.

Celtic will hope they can spread a one point gap on second-place South Shields further at the weekend, when they face fifth-placed Buxton away from home.
