The 1pm New Year games in the Premier Division Central saw Coalville Town maintain fifth spot after winning 2-0 at Greenwich Avenue in front 571 against Basford United.
The Southern Football League website reported that a Chris Robertson header right on the stroke of half-time gave the visitors an interval lead.
A fine finish from Tom McGlinchey doubled the Ravens` lead eight minutes after the break, and they could have made it 3-0 when McGlinchey was brought down in the box by Ben Starkie.
However, Ash Chambers` penalty was saved by Kieran Preston.
It set Coalville up nicely for Saturday's home clash with table-topping Tamworth on Saturday.
The Staffordshire side come to North West Leicestershire on a roll - with the Ravens looking to hold up their title charge and boost their play off hopes.
It is a fixture which is sure to produce a big crowd for one of the division's games of the day.
