The Derbyshire side have lost just once in ten outings, and that was at Conference National Altrincham in the FA Cup.

They saw off high-flying Spennymoor 2-1 at the County Durham club's Brewery Field in the FA Trophy on Saturday, and defeated Barwell by the same score on Tuesday night.

Up to seventh, Matlock are unbeaten in six league games, while the Seasiders have won their last four clashes following last weekend's epic 4-3 victory over Workington at the Turnbull.

Last season, the Blues beat Matlock 2-1 thanks to goals from Matty Waters and Mikey Roberts, while the return at the Gladiators' Causeway Lane ground saw a 1-0 Matlock victory.

Despite seeing Tuesday's league game with Grantham postponed due to the Gingerbreads' FA Trophy replay with Stratford on the same night, Whitby stay top as rivals Buxton lost 1-0 at Nantwich.

Admission at the Turnbull Ground is again £10 for adults, with under 16s admitted free, when accompanied by full-price-paying adults. concessions pay £6, under 18s £3.

Kick-off is 3.00pm.
