Moulton Harrox will be aiming to secure their second cup final place of the season on Saturday.

Bobby Patterson and Tim Cole's charges will be making the trip to face Deeping Rangers Reserves in the last four of the Peterborough League Cup.

Harrox are already through to next month's Lincolnshire Junior Cup final when they take on Wyberton at Boston United on Friday, May 6.

And co-boss Patterson is hoping his side can reach another final in Saturday's last four tie against their Division One hosts who have claimed several top flight scalps this season.

They defeated Premier Division runners-up Stilton in the quarter-finals and also enjoyed group victories over Netherton, Stamford Bels and Crowland.

Patterson said: "It would be really good to reach another final and most teams would snap your hand off to have a season like that.

"We're not going to under-estimate Deeping and will be respectful of them because we played Warboys out of their division who were a decent side.

"Deeping wouldn't look out of place in the Premier Division and they really seem to raise their game for the cup.

"It's ultimately all down to what happens on the day and we have to turn up and do it. We can't just expect it to happen else we will come unstuck."

Moulton were 3-1 home winners over Oakham United on Saturday.

All of their goals came in a dominant first half performance against a Rutland side who netted their consolation through Andy Buckle after the break.

Dec Earth broke clear to put Harrox ahead with a good finish before he set Callum Davies up to double the lead with a tap in.

It was Davies' first goal for Moulton and he soon followed that with his second and Harrox's third to cap a fine run of personal performances.

Patterson said: "We controlled the game really and Callum was superb again on Saturday.

"He's been fantastic since he came to us and it was only a matter of time until he got a goal. Hopefully he can now kick on for the final few games.

"We then had to manage the game in the second half to ensure that no-one got injured or did anything silly."

Harrox then followed up Saturday's win with a 4-0 home success over Leverington on Wednesday night.

Earth struck twice with Ash Coddington and Joe Townsend also on target.

Deeping were also in midweek action and they moved back up into second spot in Division One with a 3-2 home success over Whittlesey Reserves.

Dan Evans, Ben Porter and Jordan Avis netted the goals for the Clarets who have two league matches remaining after Saturday's semi-final.

The winners of Saturday's tie will face Division One champions Warboys in the final after they defeated Stamford Bels 1-0 in Wednesday's last four match.
