Sports, who are third, travel to ninth-placed Hednesford Town seeking to preserve their unbeaten record in 2022.

The title is now out of Sports’ reach thanks to a blistering run of form from runaway leaders Banbury, but it would take a collapse of Devon Loch proportions for the city side to fail to finish in the top five and thus miss out on the play-offs.

Sports remain a healthy 10 points clear of sixth and their priority is now to finish second and guarantee home advantage in the play-offs.
