Uttoxeter could go third with a little help

PROMOTION seeking Uttoxeter Town travel into Leicestershire tomorrow (Feb 15) to take on Ashby Ivanhoe in Midland League Division One.
A 1-0 victory away to Nuneaton Griff in midweek lifted Uttoxeter into the last of the four automatic promotion places.
Four teams will take the step up into the top flight at the end of this season as a part of the ongoing re-shuffle of the non-league pyramid system.
East Staffs neighbours Rocester could do Uttoxeter a big favour by claiming at least a point off visitors Studley, as a win for Dean Arnold’s men would see them replace the latter in third spot should that happen.
Rocester will be looking to bounce back from last weekend’s disappointing 2-1 defeat away to fifth-placed Lichfield City, where a late goal denied them a share of the spoils.
