Peterborough Sports are in elite company in the last four of the Northants Senior Cup.

The city side host National North League promotion chasers Brackley Town and FA Trophy quarter-finalists Brackley Town in their semi-final tonight (PSL, 7.45pm kick-off). The other semi-final pits Kettering Town against AFC Rushden & Diamonds.

Yaxley (blue) could go top of the UCL Premier Division.

It’s unlikely Brackley will send a full first team. They beat Peterborough Northern Star 3-1 in the quarter-finals.

Yaxley will go top of the United Counties Premier Division if they avoid defeat at home to lowly Boston Town.

The Cuckoos are one of a clutch of teams battling for top spot, but they are the only contenders in action tonight. Yaxley are a point behind top two Holbeach United and Newport Pagnell, but have a superior goal difference to both.

Spalding United’s home game against Frickley Athletic in Division One South of the Evo Stik League failed a 1pm pitch inspection.
