Holbeach United manager Seb Hayes wants to keep the focus on their quality instead of worrying about Deeping Rangers’ attacking threat on Saturday.

The Tigers initially stopped the Clarets’ flow during the derby at the Haydon Whitham Stadium in early September.

But those efforts failed as Deeping went 4-0 up and only conceded three goals right at the end.

Hayes said: “We’ll let them worry about us this time.

“That was the message in the Lincolnshire FA Senior Trophy quarter-final as well.

“We caused them more problems that night than in the league game at the start of the season.

“We have been giving a lot of information to the players about our opposition.

“Maybe at times we have taken our eyes off our own game by worrying too much about the other teams.

“Since that game against Deeping in the cup, we have been giving more information on how we can hurt teams by preparing better that way.

“We all know Deeping are a good side. Even if the players have moved around different clubs, they know each other.

Purely and simply, this league game is all about who works harder and shows their quality.

“Purely and simply, this league game is all about who works harder and shows their quality.

“For the first time in a long while, we’ve got a squad of 15 so that’s very positive going into the festive period.”

Charley Sanders starts a four-match ban while Matt Warfield and Jordan Keeble are ruled out again through injuries.

Deeping are likely to pick from a full-strength squad in a bid to end the Tigers’ unbeaten home league record.

Jason Kilbride was chosen ahead of Henry Dunn after an unchanged line-up in four games – but the home game with bottom-of-the-table Oadby Town was abandoned due to floodlight failure at half-time last weekend.
