Emley look for league double

AFC Emley will be looking to completing a league double over Bolsover when the two sides meet again at Langwith Road on Saturday (3pm).
After a 4-0 win at the Fantastic Media Welfare Ground last weekend, Emley will look to repeat that feat in Shirebrook on Saturday to maintain their push for a top half place, Emley's win on Saturday moved them up one place to 11th, whilst Bolsover sit bottom, still awaiting their first points of the season, Joe Howson's men will be hoping to avoid becoming the first side to concede points to Bolsover.
Although the scoreline suggests a comfortable victory last week, it was far from it, despite having conceded 50 goals prior to the game, Bolsover defended manfully against the Pewits and it wasn't until the 35th minute that substitute Ben Burnett opened the scoring.
Despite the defeat, Bolsover deserved credit for sticking at it and not giving in, and they showed some neat attacking moves too, so it will be far from an easy 3 points for Emley, who,as of last Saturday will be without their leading goalscorer Ruben Jerome, who signed for Evostik side Ramsbottom United, but they do have other options, notably, Burnett who came off the bench last week and notched a 2nd hat trick in 3 home games, after Jerome's treble against Swallownest last month and Huddersfield Town Loanee Ben Mills, who has impressed so far.

For anyone following the Pewits on the road the address is:

Langwith Road Ground
90 Langwith Road, Shirebrook, NG20 8TF

Admission is £5 adults, £3 concessions and under 16's are £1 if accompanied by an adult.
