Hemsworth MW are within five more wins of promotion from Division One of the Toolstation NCE League.

Even though they did not have a game last weekend they still remain 11 points clear of second-placed AFC Mansfield – with a game in hand – and 16 ahead of third-placed Bottesford Town.

That means Wayne Benn’s men can afford to lose half of their remaining matches so long as they win the other half and they will achieve their aim of promotion to the Premier Division after narrowly missing out last season.

Six more victories will guarantee Wells the title and they look well on course for them having won 26 of their 32 league matches so far with four draws and just two defeats.

Hemsworth are due to be in action tonight away to mid-table Eccleshill United before they return home to entertain sixth-placed Hallam this Saturday (3pm).

They will be looking to do the double over the Sheffield team, having beaten them 2-1 in the away game back in October.

Hemsworth are also in action away to second from bottom Worsbrough Bridge Athletic next Tuesday (7.45pm).
