Emley back in league action by Martin Eastwood

AFC Emley travel to Glasshoughton Welfare on Saturday (3PM) hoping to put their dramatic FA Vase defeat to Litherland behind them with 3 league points.
Emley's 94th minute defeat last week was a disappointment, but now attention turns back to league action and a tricky trip to the TJ'S Travel Arena to take on Glasshoughton, who have won their last 2 games, both away, to Armthorpe and Hallam respectively.
Glasshoughton currently sit one place above Emley in 9th, with 9 points from 5 games, while Emley have 7 points from 6, so a win for the Pewits would be very handy, but they will be hoping for a better outcome than last season, when leading twice, the 2nd time going into the last minute, they let the hosts back into it for a 2-2 draw, although Emley did get the win at home a few days later, so will look to keep up their good run against Glasshoughton, Emley are currently unbeaten in their last 6 meetings with Glasshoughton!
