However, Immingham are currently fourth but could still finish top on goal difference if they beat their guests by five goals or more.

Yet a draw would be enough for Tetney to be guaranteed a finish in the top two and qualify for a final as third place Nunsthorpe Tavern host Epworth Town on Saturday.

Victory for either of these sides, however, could see them finish top if they win by enough goals.

Also in the North League, sixth place Keelby United entertain Grimsby Borough Reserves.

The top two will go head to head in the South League as Louth Town entertain Wyberton.

Wyberton are top on goal difference but both sides have 16 points, meaning victory for either would guarantee top spot.

Third place Nettleham are three points behind and are still mathematically in with a chance of stealing second on goal difference if they can beat fifth-place Lincoln United Development at Mulsanne Park.

But if it's a draw at Saltfleetby then the Nettles will have to settle for third.

Horncastle Town could maintain fourth if they beat hosts Grantham Town Academy, but defeat at the Meeres could see them drop to sixth if Lincoln United can pick up at least a point.

This weekends matches between Appleby Frodingham and Bottesford Town Development Squad in the North and Sleaford Town Rangers and Lincoln Moorlands Railway have both been made void.

The top sides from both divisions with meet for the Challenge Cup at Skegness Town on May 29, with the runners-up clashing at the same venue for the Supplementary Cup.
