Tigers will take nothing for granted

Darren Jarvis has warned against complacency ahead of Holbeach United’s home game against Oadby Town.

Last season’s Division One champions are 16th in the top flight of the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League.

They were in the bottom two when Danny Spencer’s goal earned an away victory for Holbeach in September as the Tigers set the pace in the title race.

Oadby head to Carter’s Park on Saturday boosted by Tuesday night’s last-gasp victory at Wellingborough Town who lost to Holbeach last weekend.

Jarvis said: “They are a very good side going forward with experienced players from a higher level.

“But they seem to be very unpredictable as they beat AFC Rushden & Diamonds and they had other results where you would expect them to do better.

“Of course it’s a game that we can win at home. But we won’t under-estimate Oadby for one second.

“We’re looking forward to it and hopefully we can build on a very pleasing performance and result from last Saturday.

“It’s been nice to have a break this week so we should be fresh and ready.”

Holbeach’s squad should be boosted by the return of defender Stacy Cartwright and midfielder Danny Steadman following injuries.

Jarvis added: “Steadman will certainly play a part and I’d like to get him back on the pitch as soon as possible.

“Hopefully Cartwright will be fit as well.”

The Tigers boss is also looking to complete a deal to bring in another player from Boston United’s youth team.

Full-back Dan Worthington has already made a good impression while midfielder Bradley Easy came on as a substitute last weekend.

They are set to be joined by Pilgrims midfielder Corey Newman.

He scored for Grantham Town against Holbeach in the Lincolnshire Senior Trophy in January.

Holbeach are hoping to get his registration transferred from UCL Division One club Blackstones in time for this weekend’s game.
