Stuttering Holbeach United are looking to get their season back on track after seeing their derby clash at Boston Town postponed on Tuesday following a floodlight failure at Tattershall Road.

The Tigers are currently on a five-game losing streak – and had hoped to get back to winning ways against the lowly Poachers.

But now they face a tough home UCL Premier Division test against fourth-placed Cogenhoe United at Carter’s Park on Saturday (3pm).

Boss Glen Maddison said: “It’s nobody’s fault, but having the Boston game postponed is really frustrating. I’d hoped to get a result and nip this bad run in the bud.

“Now we face a Cogenhoe team in a rich vein of form and it won’t be easy. Although we’ve been a little unlucky as of late, we’ve still been losing too many games.

“But we’re not a million miles away from where we need to be. It’s just important that we start picking up points – starting on Saturday.”

Maddison hopes to have Luke Wilson in his squad on Saturday. He’s able to talk to the Boston Town defender after making a seven-day approach and was confident of striking a deal yesterday.

Joe Braithwaite and Lewis Sturman also return.
