Another tough test for in-form Peterborough Northern Star, buoyant Yaxley travel to Dunstable, new permanent Spalding United manager
Peterborough Northern Star hope to transfer their strong FA Vase form into the United Counties League tomorrow (September 22).
Star earned a first round tie at UCL Premier Division rivals Sleaford Town by beating March Town in a second qualifying round tie at the Branch Bros Stadium last weekend.
Jake Sansby struck the only goal of the game seven minutes from time to complete a fourth win in a row in all competitions.
That run predictably ended on Tuesday when higher level AFC Rushden & Diamonds beat Star 2-0 in the opening round of the Northants FA’s Hillier Cup competition.
Star have another tough home game tomorrow as unbeaten Oadby are the visitors for a Premier Division match.
Fifth-placed Deeping Rangers host third-placed Eynesbury in a tasty-looking clash, while second-placed Pinchbeck entertain Desborough.
Yaxley are slowly finding their feet at Evo Stik League level.
The Cuckoos ended a run of four straight defeats in Division One Central of the Southern League by beating Sutton Coldfield 3-0 at In2itive Park last Saturday.
Yaxley moved up to 12th after a second win of the season. They travel to Dunstable who are 14th tomorrow.
Spalding United have confirmed caretaker-manager Matt Easton has been handed the job on a permanent basis. He starts with a Evo Stik Northern League East Division game at Ossett United tomorrow when Stamford AFC make the long haul to Marske United.
