Local football: Sileby Town move into title reckoning
Sileby Town have quietly moved into the Premier Division reckoning.
They have climbed to third place after picking up 24 points from the last 27 available.
The goals of Tom Marriott have proved crucial – he has a dozen to his name so far.
Standing in Sileby's way tomorrow are bottom-of-the-table FC GNG, who have just two wins to their name so far and are facing a relegation battle.

Town are 12 points behind leaders Rothley Imps and, even though they have two games in hand, Sileby still need the defending champions to slip up once or twice in the second half of the season, if they are to mount a title challenge.
Meanwhile, Imps, who have blasted a total of 71 goals to date, travel to Ashby Ivanhoe tomorrow.
Second-placed Caterpillar travel to Cottesmore Amateurs, where both sides are looking to get back on the right track.
Amateurs saw a run of five unbeaten games ended last week when they were hammered 7-0 at Stapenhill.
Caterpillar were edged out of the Senior Cup on Wednesday night 3-2 by EMCL outfit Blaby & Whetstone Athletic.
Stapenhill travel to Sileby Saints, while the sides ahead of them in fifth and fourth places, Highfield Rangers and Kirby Muxloe Reserves, meet at Gleneagles Avenue.
With just eight games of their season remaining, Birstall United desperately need a strong finish to climb away from the threat of relegation. They visit Desford tomorrow.
Saffron Dynamo have just hit the half-way point of their campaign but, having mustered just 10 points to date, visit Dunton and Broughton tomorrow, still looking over their shoulders.
