Two bang in-form sides clash in a tasty Boxing Day derby (1pm kick off) when Peterborough Sports host Yaxley at the Bee Arena in Division One Central of the Evo Stik Southern League.

Sports will start as favourites after returning to the top of the table with an impressive 4-0 win at Aylesbury United on Saturday (December 22).

They won 3-1 at Yaxley back in August and they now face a team getting to grips with their first season as a step four club. The Cuckoos beat Dunstable 2-0 on Saturday to record a fourth straight win and moved up to ninth place as a result. Sports failed to win their home game with Dunstable the week before.

Wisbech Town host Stamford AFC in Division One East of the Evo Stik Northern League on Boxing Day (3pm) when Spalding United travel to Brighouse Town.

There are three tasty United Counties League derbies as well. Peterborough Northern Star host Deeping Rangers and Pinchbeck entertain Holbeach United in the Premier Division (both 3pm), while Blackstones are at home to Bourne in Division One (1pm).

It’s an early start for March Town (11am) as they seek to bounce back from their first defeat in 13 Eastern Counties Division One North games at struggling local rivals Wisbech St Mary.
