Two in-form teams meet at the Sir Halley Stewart Field tonight.

Pinchbeck United are seven points clear at the top after 10 wins out of 11 games.

Hopefully we’ll get a few more people down tonight and there is also a gap between the games which can help us.

Ollie Maltby (2) and Oli Shackleton were on target in last weekend’s 3-0 victory at Bugbrooke St Michaels.

Blackstones blasted five goals for the third successive Saturday as they moved into fourth place with a home win over basement boys Stewarts & Lloyds Corby.

They took the goals tally to 18 in four league games since of the appointment of joint bosses Lee Clarke and Daniel French.

Andrew Tidswell (3) and Maltby (2) earned a 5-2 win for Pinchbeck in mid-September away to Blackstones.

The home game has been brought forward from the original date on Saturday while the Boxing Day derby at Harrowby United was moved to Wednesday night.

Player-boss Ian Dunn said: “Hopefully we’ll get a few more people down tonight and there is also a gap between the games which can help us.

“We’re looking forward to it and we’d love to attract a crowd into three figures.

“Blackstones seem to be very similar to when we met earlier in the season, despite a change of management.

“They will be confident but we fancy ourselves to get the job done again.

“However, we’ll need to do much better than the previous home game with Huntingdon Town when we drew.”

Luke Gardner is a fitness doubt but the Knights should be able to bring back Nick Bishop, Liam Ogden and Tom Brooks.

Tony Edwards’ ban will start next week after his red card for violent conduct at Bugbrooke.
