Holbeach United face a tough test in their bid to bounce back from last weekend’s FA Vase exit.

On Saturday, the Tigers return to action at Carter’s Park against Harborough Town who are unbeaten in six games.

It’s very tight at the top of the table and we have a very tough month coming up.

The Bees beat Deeping Rangers 1-0 last time while Holbeach suffered a 4-1 loss at Walsall Wood in the Vase.

Assistant manager Tom Roberts said: “Harborough are in good form and a team who are definitely on the up at the moment.

“They showed that last week against Deeping so we’ve got to be aware of that and be organised.

“We beat them 1-0 in the away game when they had a few chances and we created a couple as well.

“We expect Saturday to be another tough game but we need to bounce back.

“We have to right the wrongs of a disappointing defeat when Walsall Wood were more clinical in both penalty boxes.

“If Jake Clitheroe had scored to put us 2-1 up then it may have been a different story.

“That has gone now and we have to concentrate on getting more points on the board.

“It’s very tight at the top of the table and we have a very tough month coming up.”

Ollie Pinner is starting a four-match ban and Tommy Treacher is ruled out with a calf injury. Dan Dougill returns to the squad after representing Lincolnshire.

Meanwhile, Scott Mooney will serve a one-match ban as Deeping Rangers make the trip to Rothwell Corinthians on Saturday.

After a poor performance in a 3-0 home defeat to Raunds Town last weekend, Bourne Town head to fourth-placed Potton United.
