Silverware could be heading to Outgang Road after Deeping Rangers reached the final of the UCL League Knockout Cup with a 5-0 caning of Wellingborough Town.

A Ryan Oliver hat-trick and a brace by Matt Heron booked Rangers’ place in the final against either Huntingdon Town or Boston Town, who play on April 16.

In the UCL Premier Division, Holbeach United have a chance to wipe two last-gasp defeats in a row out of their system when they travel to Northampton Sileby Rangers on Saturday. Tenth-placed Tigers are looking to close the gap on the teams above them against a Sileby side fighting relegation.

Holbeach boss Glen Maddison will be without defender Matt Warfield and striker Tommy Treacher, but should have Chris Shipperley and James Reid back.
