Netherton United will return to to the top of the Peterborough Premier Division tomorrow (November 12) with a win against AFC Stanground Sports at the Grange (2pm).

It won’t be easy for a Netherton side humbled 3-0 at Stamford Lions last weekend as their city rivals are enjoying an excellent season.

Stanground are fifth and pushed title fancies Pinchbeck United all the way last weekend before losing 3-1.

Netherton’s defeat cost them top spot as reigning champions Moulton Harrox over-hauled them, but Harrox are in Lincs Cup action tomorrow.

Third-placed Peterborough Sports Reserves could go top if Netherton slip up again. They are at Stilton United tomorrow.

“Everything that could go wrong last week did go wrong,” Netherton manager Jon Harrison admitted. “The pitch and the wind were terrible and so were we.”
