Matt Heron returns for Deeping Rangers on Saturday after a goalscoring performance in midweek for Whittlesey Blue Star.

Heron, who scored 19 goals as Deeping finished fourth in the UCL Premier Division last season, missed Saturday’s 1-0 FA Cup defeat at Norwich United due to work commitments.

But he is available to face Cogenhoe United and in form after scoring twice in a 5-4 win at Netherton Reserves in the Peterborough League.

Recent signing Chris Logan, who can play in defence or midfield, is also set to be involved but Martin Wormall is unlikely to be available for another two or three weeks.

Manager Tuncay Korkmaz said: “Matt is likely to go straight into the team because we need his physical presence.”

Deeping began the campaign with two victories before suffering a heavy 4-0 defeat at Holbeach, but Korkmaz was more concerned with last week’s cup defeat where they lacked creativity.
