A win for Lions at home to Warboys will move them to the summit as current leaders Moulton Harrox are in President’s Shield quarter-final action at Whittlesey Athletic.

Lions, who are playing just their second season in the top flight, moved up to second with a hard-fought 2-1 win at Leverington last weekend when strikers Luke Ball and Tom Edwards both scored.

Moulton will hope to join Netherton, Thorney and Holbeach United in the last four of the Shield.
