Staying in and watching TV tonight? Doing the weekly big shop? Off to your Zumba class? Cancel your plans.

The hottest ticket in town tonight is the game at Sandy Lane between Worksop Town and Tadcaster Albion.

Fireworks are expected, on the pitch, as the league leaders Tad take on the team directly below them, Tigers.

Mark Shaw’s men will leapfrog their rivals with victory, and still have two games in hand on tonight’s visitors.

But why would you drag yourself away from The Apprentice on a night that promises a temperature of 14°C?

Because these two teams will almost certainly deliver drama.

Last season, at Sandy Lane, Tadcaster’s former Manchester United man Jonathan Greening was sent off inside the game’s first five minutes.

Tigers roared into the lead, only for Albion to hit back in the final minute and steal a point.

When the sides met at the Brewers’ home on the final day of the season, Worksop won 2-1 in front of over 500, Conor Sellars scoring from the spot and with a direct free-kick.

It’s expected that well over 500 will flock to Sandy Lane tonight, Tadcaster contributing to the attendance with a free coach for their supporters.

Worksop are a team in fine form, and want to make it 10 wins on the bounce.

They’re scoring a ridiculous number of goals, like they always do under Mark Shaw - with 49 in 13 games thus far in the NCEL Premier.

Tadcaster have hit the net twice more in their 15 outings.

Worksop’s goal difference is better, however, thanks to their meaner defensive record of just one goal conceded per game.

You’ll see goals, that much is a given.

You will also see a number of young, impressive talents, like Tom Elliott – on the watchlist of Championship club Sheffield Wednesday – and Kyle Jordan, who has 14 goals to his credit already.

And the atmosphere will be noisy, and tinged with tension.

There might even be an appearance from a sweet-throwing cuddly mascot, so bring the kids.

You could stay at home, and read all about the game on Twitter or on this website later tonight.

Or, you could record Lord Sugar and his latest band of business bozos, watch that tomorrow night, and enjoy some non-league football for the princely sum of £5.

See you at Sandy Lane at 7.45pm.
