Kidsgrove face a critical match in their bid to escape the relegation zone, as Bedworth United travel to The Seddon Stadium on Saturday.
The Greenbacks have also endured a turbulent season, and have already changed managers twice in an attempt to improve their fortunes. They currently sit just one point and one place above Athletic having played two games more, meaning victory for either side will see them head into the festive season outside of the bottom two.
Athletic finally recorded their second league win of the season after coming from behind to beat Chasetown 2-1. In a typical games of two halves, the visitors dominated the first period and took the lead through Paul Sullivan on 43 minutes.
