WITTON enter the Tigers' den on New Year's Day.
Hyde United ended the Boxing Day clash with a roar, having three men sent off in a seven-goal thriller edged by Witton.
All of which makes for a highly-strung return, when Witton will be without two-goal hero Darrell Dicken and centre-back Gary Furnival, who are both serving one-match bans.
Simon Hughes will rejoin the defence while Dave Nolan will also be considered after an illness. But John Stannard, who would make a natural replacement for Dicken, is still not match-fit. The game kicks off at 7.45pm.
Hyde also have two suspended, including Paul Jones who was a villain at Wincham Park.
Not only was he sent off in injury time but he allegedly caused damage to match officials' clothing after his red card. Albion have made a report to the UniBond League and FA.
The win gives Witton a firmer foothold in the top 12 - those who will be promoted to the Premier Division next season - and they can further establish themselves in the comfort zone at Bishop Auckland on Saturday.
In the competition to join the dominant dozen, Bishops could overhaul Albion with their game in hand - or by beating them. The game is played at Shildon where Bishop Auckland are sharing facilities.
Witton's third game in six days comes on Tuesday when they host Droylsden, the Premier Division leaders and Conference applicants, in the League Cup. The winners are at Whitby Town in the quarterfinals. Hyde's first goal on Saturday has been officially logged as an own goal by Paul Gibson. He only helped the ball into the net, when he should have left well alone. Phil Salt's free kick
