Peterborough Sports chase their 100th United Counties Premier Division goal of the season at lowly Oadby Town tomorrow (January 21).

The city side’s impressive 4-1 win at home to title rivals Deeping Rangers last weekend (January 14) took them to 97 goals from just 26 matches.

Sports should at least maintain their seven point lead at the top of the table by winning at Oadby and it would be a surprise if they didn’t score at least three times. Yaxley stuck six past Oadby in a League Cup quarter-final tie on Tuesday.

Deeping, who dropped to third place following their defeat at Sports, are at home to improving Cogenhoe United on Saturday.

Fifth-placed Yaxley, who have kept clean sheets in each of their last three wins, host Newport Pagnell.

Spalding United should be able to consolidate second place in Division One South of the Evo Stik Northern Premier Division when travelling to lowly Rugby Town.

Stamford AFC, whose manager Graham Drury admitted to being ‘gobsmacked’ by his side’s slump from 3-0 up to 4-2 down at Market Draton last weekend, host mid-table Bedworth United.
