Sports, who are third, travel to ninth-placed Hednesford Town seeking to preserve their unbeaten record in 2022.
The title is now out of Sports’ reach thanks to a blistering run of form from runaway leaders Banbury, but it would take a collapse of Devon Loch proportions for the city side to fail to finish in the top five and thus miss out on the play-offs.
Sports remain a healthy 10 points clear of sixth and their priority is now to finish second and guarantee home advantage in the play-offs.
Former Posh youth team defender Shaun Keane has joined Sports on loan from Bedford Town.
Stamford AFC have another huge match in the Northern Premier Midlands Division at Belper on Saturday. The Daniels are in the last play-off place and Belper sit one place and three points above them.
