Beverley Town return to Humber Premier League action. It has been a difficult month of postponements and poor results; Town will aim to get back to winning ways as soon as possible. Chalk Lane managed to pick up a draw last time the two sides faced each other but have not been impressive so far this season.

Hull City could be four wins from four following the visit of Millwall. The Tigers have had a sudden surge of form in recent weeks. Victories over lower table rivals Cardiff and Barnsley have lifted City away from the relegation zone. Millwall have consistently drawn games this season and are on a run of three draws in a row but are sat just outside the play-offs and will offer City a challenge.

Hall Road Rangers are powering up the NCEL Division One. This weekend is another opportunity to further their position in the league with a trip away to Dronfield. Rangers have won four of the last five only drawing the other. The hosts have lost the last two but were five unbeaten in a topsy-turvy first half of the campaign. Oliver Harlsey has more ahead of Dronfield vs Hall Road.

North Ferriby FC welcome Nostell Miners Welfare to the Dransfield Stadium on Saturday hoping to consolidate the top spot and their unbeaten league start. It has been a busy seven days for the Villagers with a penalty defeat to North Shields coupled with a league win at Teversal in midweek. The Villagers have provided a pre-match report.

Beverley RUFC have a difficult task against third-placed Pontefract on Saturday. The Beavers lost last week in a feisty derby with Bridlington. Chairman Brian Gilbert does not expect much from the fixture tomorrow but hopes for a good performance.

Hull City Ladies enter the second round of the FA Cup at home to Liverpool Feds. The Tigresses picked up their first win of the season last time out. They come up against a Feds team which have been on some impressive form and lead their league. During the week Carol Thomas has been inducted into the National Football Museum Hall of Fame.
