The Daniels and the Gingerbreadmen both lost Evo Stik League play-off finals last season. Stamford’s summer action so far has been restricted to a 5-1 home defeat by Peterborugh United in a friendly last week, a scoreline that flattered Posh.

Stamford signed defender Josh Eggington after he impressed in that match. He should play tonight.

The winners of a tie which will be settled by penalties if level at 90 minutes, will face holders Gainsborough Trinity away at the Northolme.
