The Ammers are a point ahead of Penistone Church, who have a game in hand, and will be looking to notch their first win in four after back-to-back league defeats and a County Cup exit earlier this week.

They face a Barton side who have won twice in six league games and sit rooted in mid-table.

Penistone, meanwhile, will look to increase the difference between themselves and third-placed Hemsworth Miners Welfare when the two take on each other at the Fitzwilliam Stadium.
