Holbeach United v Yaxley (Saturday, 3pm): JOHN Chand has urged his side not to underestimate the Cuckoos at Carter’s Park.

Holbeach go into the UCL Premier Division clash eight points clear of Yaxley, who have only won once in eight league games.

Club legend Matt Warfield and talismanic midfielder Paul Goodhand are set to return to the fold, but striker Tommy Treacher is unavailable.

The Cuckoos could line up with Pinchbeck United keeper Tom Roberts between the sticks.

Tigers boss Chand said: “It’s a winnable fixture, but Yaxley are always tough opposition. We played them twice at the end of last season and it was close both times.

“They’ve had a poor start but have been on a good run lately.”

Yaxley could also field ex-Spalding United striker Liam Harrold – providing they can beat St Ives Town to his signature.
