Deeping Rangers are back home for an early kick-off in the bid to bounce back from their FA Vase disappointment.

They face eight-placed Newport Pagnell Town on Saturday (2pm) knowing that victory would lift Tuncay Korkmaz’s side above their visitors in the table.

Mid-table Deeping – two points behind with four games in hand – have not lost over 90 minutes since the end of September.

It took an extra-time goal to end their Vase dreams at home to Heanor Town last weekend.

Korkmaz called for his squad to take confidence from their second-half display when defender Joe Braithwaite left it late to produce the equaliser, scoring for the third successive game.

Striker Ian Ward will serve a one-match suspension on Saturday.
