FOOTBALL: Knights facing another tough test




Pinchbeck United want to end Wellingborough Town's unbeaten league record on Saturday.

The Doughboys arrive at the Sir Halley Stewart Field with eight points from four games - including a midweek win at Premier Division leaders Harborough Town.

The Knights have lost three out of four so far this season in the uhlsport United Counties League.

Player-manager Ian Dunn said: "It's going to be tough on Saturday but hopefully we can give a better account of ourselves.

"I'm trying to look at it pragmatically when the scenario isn't that bad.

"Boston Town are below us and Deeping Rangers are only just in front of us. Both of those clubs have spent more money on the squad."

Nottingham-based striker Eugene Francis made his debut in last weekend's 2-0 defeat at Anstey Nomads.

Dunn added: "We have a lot of games around the Leicestershire area so our away matches are almost like a home fixture for him.

"The majority of players from last season's squad have gone their own way - mainly to Boston - so we are looking further afield to bring in experience at this level.

"The league is moving further west and north so we can get a car school from places like Lincoln or Nottingham.

"Players around here seem happy in local football and they don't want the hassle of travelling."

Pinchbeck are looking to strengthen the squad before Saturday's game.

However, it appears that talks with former Deeping Rangers and Holbeach United defender Jonny Clay have ended.
