Holbeach United v Kempston Rovers (Saturday, 3pm): REVENGE is on the Tigers’ mind as they bid to right the wrongs of the opening day of the season.

Promoted Kempston handed John Chand’s men a surprise 1-0 reverse back on August 13 – and it still rankles with the Holbeach boss

There’s an even bigger incentive for the in-form Tigers to pull off a fifth-successive UCL Premier Division win too.

If results go their way, they could find themselves third in the table come 5pm on Saturday.

Chand said: “Losing at Kempston was the most frustrating result of our season, it annoyed us all.

“We put it behind us though and are all keen to keep our winning run going. It won’t be easy though, they are a good team.

“With King’s Lynn playing St Ives there’s a chance for us to climb the table.”

The Carter’s Park clash could see defender Dan Flack make his debut, with former club Biggleswade Town allowing him to complete his move to the Tigers.

Midfield maestro Paul Goodhand is definitely available too, having missed much of the past month with an Achilles problem.

Another midfielder, Spalding United’s Ryan O’Loughlin, is allowed to speak to the Tigers this week too.

Chand has made an official seven-day notice of approach for the left sider and admitted he’s heard “good things” about the former Grimsby Town ace.

Kempston arrive at Carter’s Park as outsiders, having won just once in their last four UCL Premier Division fixtures.
