This is the Flamingo Land Stadium club's highest ever finish in the pyramid, and arrangements for Tuesday's play-off fixture have now been released.

A club statement said: "Following communication with our opposition, Matlock Town, the game on Tuesday 26th April at the Flamingo Land Stadium will be segregated to minimise any risks in what will be an emotive fixture for both sets of supporters. We also hope this will enhance the atmosphere at the Flamingo Land Stadium under the lights.

"Turnstiles will open from 6.45pm. Home supporters should enter via the Boro Gates turnstiles, which is all pay. Visiting supporters will regrettably not have access to the clubhouse. Hot food and refreshments will be available inside the ground.

"Should the game be level after 90 minutes, extra time and penalties will be played (if required). Please plan your journey accordingly. The game is under Northern Premier League rules."
