The first big UCL Premier Division derby of the season sees Spalding United travel to Boston Town tonight (Tuesday, 7.45pm).

Town lost their Tattershall Road opener 3-1 against Cogenhoe United on Saturday, while the Tulips are bidding to make it back-to-back wins.

Spalding boss Pat Rayment said: “They have been making noises about their chances this season, but didn’t get off to the best of starts on Saturday.

“It’s a big local derby and I expect they’ll be well up for it, but we just have to keep calm and focus on our own performance.”

Striker Andrew Tidswell (broken hand) is back in the squad, but Dan Cotton (ban) and Miles Chamberlain remain sidelined.

Tonight’s action also sees Deeping Rangers visit Sleaford Town (7.45pm), while Holbeach United make the tough trip to Huntingdown Town on Wednesday night (7.45pm).
