PINCHBECK United player/boss Ian Dunn can’t wait for his first derby with Moulton Harrox this weekend.

High-flying United host Harrox in the ‘mini clasico’ at Knight Street on Saturday (2pm) – knowing a win will take them seven points clear of their rivals.

But Dunn insists he’ll not be treating the game differently to any other

He said: “Obviously it’s a local derby and I’d expect it to be feisty. But we’ll treat it the same as any other game.

“Not many of the lads have played in this fixture before, so they won’t be as wrapped in the rivalry as much as we may have done last season.

“I’m looking forward to it personally, everyone likes a local derby.”

Andy Law is Pinchbeck’s only injury doubt, while Tom Gosling is banned.

Harrox come into the game off the back of a physical clash with Parson Drove.

They won 4-3 at Broad Lane with goals coming from Ashley Coddington, Ben Allen, Steve Mastin and Tom Panton, but Drove had seven men booked and two sent off.
