The Sportsmen in search of home win number four on the bounce whilst the men from The Green look to stretch their unbeaten away ways up to five games.
With third place Renhold United sitting the afternoon out, fourth place Arlesey Town Reserves will climb above them in the league standings should they gain a point or more from their Armadillo Stadium home outing against Shefford Town & Campton.To achieve that the hosts will have to find a way to end their current three game losing run against a Town side whose away record for the campaign makes better reading than their achievements on home soil this season.
Sitting in sixth spot are Marston Shelton Rovers, for them it's the short trip on the road to Steppingley Road to be hosted by tenth place Flitwick Town. Rovers in search of away win number three on the bounce against a Town side that are currently unbeaten in the last six league outings.
Over at Hillgrounds, eighth place AFC Kempston Town & Bedford College having lost their last two league outings look to put that matter right when they host a Sharnbrook side that likewise has lost its last two league outings to drop down to eleventh place in the league table.
Whilst at Miller Road, ninth place Bedford Hatters search out home win number four on the bounce against now third from bottom of the table Lidlington United Sports whose last five league trips away from their Hurst Grove base have all ended in defeat.
The final top flight action coming at The Carlsberg Stadium, hosts AFC Biggleswade being firm favourites to chalk up their fourth consecutive league win when visited by bottom of the table Bedford Sports Athletic who travel in search of league win number one of the season to end their current seven game losing league run.
In Division Two, the action is of just one game when in Mowsbury Park league leaders Goldington look to stretch their lead at the head of the league standings up to four points against bottom of the table Queens Park Crescents. However, beware it was The Crescents who removed them from The Beds FA Junior Cup at the same venue back at the beginning of the month.

The remaining two fixtures being in the first round of The Watson Shield. At their Playing Field headquarters, division four Marston Shelton Rovers Reserves will more than fancy their chances of a spot of giant killing when called upon by bottom of the table division three side Royal Oak Kempston. Whilst at Jubilee Playing Fields, it's an all division three clash between hosts Wilshamstead Reserves and the visiting Great Barford in a tie that could go either way.
