Peterborough Sports aim to end a frustrating week on a high note with a victory at Deeping Rangers in the United Counties Premier Division tonight (September 6).

Sports have bowed out of two cups in the last seven days - the League Cup they won last season and the FA Cup - but they could return to the top of the Premier Division with three points this evening.
