But the prize for success is big. Sports will return to the top of the table if they pick up a point. They are one point behind current leaders Bromsgrove Sporting, but have two games in hand and a superior goal difference.

Sports then travel to mid-table AFC Dunstable on Saturday (March 30) before a trip to Welwyn Garden City next Tuesday (April 2), a game that was controversially postponed earlier this season as Welwyn were unable to raise a side.

Sports are angry the points weren’t awarded to them. Welwyn have instead been fined.

Sports start a difficult run in fine form. They didn’t play at their best on Saturday, but still beat Barton Rovers 4-0.

Elsewhere Peterborough Northern Star will have to play well to end their run of 13 United Counties Premier Division games without a win when they host fifth-placed Pinchbeck United at the Branch Bros Stadium (7.45pm kick-off).
