Holbeach United will take their impressive away record to AFC Kempston Rovers on Saturday.

The Tigers have dropped just five points on the road so far this season during their title challenge.

Manager John Chand said: “I’ve got a lot of admiration for Kempston.

“They are a decent side who play good football, although we beat them comprehensively at home.

“In my opinion over the next five years they will have a championship-winning side because the structure is there and they are making progress.”

Jake Duffy (2) and Jamie Clarke earned a 3-0 home win over Kempston last month.

Defender Stacy Cartwright is expected to recover from injury to make the trip but skipper Danny Spencer is moving to Australia.
