Pinchbeck United and Moulton Harrox can close the gap in the championship race with home wins tonight.

Bottom-of-the-table Crowland Town visit Knight Street (6.30pm kick-off) as fourth-placed Pinchbeck look to put the pressure on league leaders Peterborough Sports Reserves.

Pinchbeck are four points behind Sports after losing to them in the Premier Division last week.

But they hit back with a 1-0 win at Langtoft United on Saturday thanks to top scorer Ollie Maltby’s goal just five minutes before half-time.

Defending champions Moulton remain second, also four points behind Sports.

Harrox face Thorney at Broad Lane tonight (6.30pm) after Joe Townsend’s goal on Saturday ended Stamford Lions’ winning run. The fifth-placed visitors finished the game with nine men.
