The Robins are back on the road this Saturday (March 12th) as we travel to face Chasetown at the Scholar Ground.
Both Montel Gibson and Ollie Brown-Hill return to the squad, while new signing Saul Deeney is also expected to be among those included.
Following the Robins’ defeat to Chasetown in the opening weeks of the season, both sides have gone on to be dominant in their bid for promotion, only losing seven games between them, scoring 150 goals and conceding only 65.
Table-toppers Ilkeston come into this game off the back of a goalless draw away at Spalding, extending their unbeaten run to 11 games.
Third-placed Chasetown, on the other hand, fell to a 4-0 home defeat to Stamford, putting an end to their eight-game unbeaten run.
Both sides have players amongst the league’s top ten goalscorers. Chasetown’s Jack Langston tops the table with 22 goals, with Ilkeston’s Zak Goodson second with 20. Chasetown’s Joey Butlin sits third with 17, with Ilkeston’s Remaye Campbell on 15 and Alex Troke 13.
