Holbeach United have a clean bill of health for Saturday’s visit of promoted Northampton Sileby Rangers (3pm).

Strikers Julian Joachim (hamstring) and Liam Tunstall (leg) expect to be fit for the Carter’s Park clash, while Liam Ogden and skipper Matt Warfield also return.

Glen Maddison, who has won both of his competitive home games as Tigers boss, is aiming to heap more misery on the UCL Division One champions.

Sileby are pointless so far in the UCL Premier Division – but have played away at title favourites Spalding United and AFC Rushden and Diamonds in their two games this season.

Maddison said: “They’ve had a very hard start, so you can’t read anything into that.

“At home, we have to fancy our chances. We seem much more confident in front of our own fans and I hope that continues.

“We get great support and I’m keen for the lads to use that and play some attacking football.

“If we can go out and get another win I’d certainly be happy with six points from our first three games.

“We just need to keep doing what we’ve been doing.”
