The top two teams in the Premier Division go head to head on Saturday.

Pinchbeck United face leaders Peterborough Sports Reserves in the PFA Senior Cup semi-final at Knight Street (2pm kick-off).

Both sides have built long winning runs in the title race but this weekend they are competing for a place in the cup final at Peterborough United’s ABAX Stadium.

Pinchbeck player-boss Ian Dunn said: “Both teams are on top form and there is a great incentive of playing the final on a lovely surface.

“It should be a good game to watch for anyone who wants to come along with free admission.”

Pinchbeck’s 17th successive league win came against ICA Sports on Saturday.

Liam Ogden put them in front and top scorer Ollie Maltby added a second-half double after the visitors got back on level terms.

Dunn added: “It wasn’t a great performance but those wins are more pleasing if you can grind them out.

“We were disciplined and very good defensively then we had a bit of quality to score the goals.”

Meanwhile, third-placed Moulton Harrox beat Sawtry 3-0 with goals from Marcus Parry, Joe Townsend and Jake Cawthorne.

It should be a good game to watch for anyone who wants to come along with free admission.

Jordan Keeble got the consolation as Holbeach United’s reserves lost 3-1 at AFC Stanground Sports.

Adam Sparkes was on target for Deeping Rangers’ reserves in a 2-1 home defeat to Stilton United.

Bottom-of-the-table Crowland Town went down to a single strike at Uppingham Town who moved above them.
