ATHERTON LR host Holker Old Boys at Crilly Park on Saturday with both sides vying for a sixth-placed finish in North West Counties Division One.
Going into the match the two teams are separated by goal difference, with Holker having the better of the two having played five fewer games.
Atherton LR will be hoping they can record their third successive win after recently beating Irlam 2-0 and Ashton Town 2-1.
The last meeting between LR and Old Boys took place on the first day of the season when Rovers grabbed a point with a last-minute equaliser from Kristian Holt.
Rovers final match of the season comes on Monday when they travel to Atherton Collieries for the fourth Flatcap Derby of the season.
The man of the match receives a flatcap, with Colls currently leading the derby stakes 2-1. Daisy Hill travel to take on Widnes Vikings.
The reverse fixture saw the teams draw 1-1 at New Sirs.
Fellow strugglers Leek CSOB and Eccleshall both gained points during the week meaning Daisy are now second bottom.
