Glen Maddison has something of a selection headache ahead of Saturday’s UCL Premier Division trip to Kempston Rovers (3pm).

The Tigers chief is without unavailable first-choice wingers Andy Law and Tom Sergeant against one of their rivals for a top six finish.

That leaves Ian Dunn, Luke Hollingworth, Pedro Sevilha and Frazer Bayliss vying for a place in the starting line-up at Hillgrounds Leisure.

Whoever he goes with, Holbeach boss Maddison is expecting a tough game.

He said: “It’s a bit of a blow to lose those two. Andy Law in particular has been doing really well of late.

“It has taken him a bit of time to get used to the pace of the UCL, but now he’s settled and playing very well.

“I’ve got a few options and we could look at going 4-3-3 over there. Whatever we do, it’ll be tough – they’ve really picked up as of late.

“But it’s another one of these mid-table games that we can look to take three points from. The results went nicely for us last weekend, so we didn’t lose much ground after our draw with PNS.

“I don’t think they’ve played for a while, so they could be a bit rusty. We know how difficult that is.”

Maddison remains in the market for new signings, but doesn’t currently have any seven-day approaches in.

He will run the rule over young defender Niall Delahoy though, after the youngster was released by Boston United Reserves.

Delahoy was expected to train with the Tigers last night.

Elsewhere in the UCL Premier Division on Saturday, Deeping Rangers will be expecting to rack up the goals when they visit basement boys Harborough Town (3pm).
