Holbeach United boast one of the hottest strikers in non-League football and Lee Dube bids for a hat-trick of hat-tricks when Long Buckby travel to Carter’s Park tomorrow.
Long Buckby lie bottom of the UCL Premier Division, having lost all three games to date, so the prospect of facing the rampant Tigers, and in-form Dube in particular, must be daunting.
Dube began the season on the bench but made an instant impression when coming on at Peterborough Northern Star and scoring twice in a 6-1 victory on his debut.
He missed the 2-1 win over Desborough Town but grabbed hat-tricks in a 4-0 victory over Deeping Rangers and the 5-1 FA Cup success at Diss Town.
Joint-manager John Chand is refusing to get carried away by Holbeach’s superb start.
He said: “We’re happy with the way it’s gone so far but there are a few other teams, particularly AFC Rushden & Diamonds , who look strong.”
