Pinchbeck United are aiming to extend their unbeaten start to the campaign at home to Bourne Town tonight.

The Knights were held to a 1-1 draw by Lutterworth Town on Saturday while the Wakes went down 5-0 at Potton United for their second loss.

Pinchbeck assistant boss Allan Ross said: “I’m sure that Bourne will be energetic and doing their best to win a local derby in front of a good crowd.

“We can be effective when we get the ball into the final third and identify weak spots.”

Bourne joint manager Jimmy McDonnell added: “This is a massive game and there is no doubt that they would love to turn us over.

“They are a little village club down the road who will look at ourselves as one of the big boys in the UCL.
