Pinchbeck United travel to Selston in crucial United Counties League Premier Division North game


Knights boss Lewis Thorogood believes his side have a chance to score an advantage in a crucial spell in the battle to beat the United Counties Premier League’s falling North Division.

Pinchbeck, second from the bottom, will face a Selston team on Saturday who are just one point and one place above the Knights in the standings.

They then host a Deeping Rangers out of form next weekend ahead of games against Skegness Town and Holbeach United at the bottom of the table during the holiday season.

This is a vital series of matches for the Knights who will aim to secure the brace against the hosts on Saturday after a 3-1 home victory over Nottinghamshire in late August.

Thorogood said: “This is a very important four or five week period for us and there is a unity and a willingness within the team to want us out of this situation.

“I’m really happy that there has been a good turnout in training and that the boys are in a good mood with each other.

“They really want us out of this difficult situation and now we have a series of games which are very important for the development or the course of our season.

“I don’t want to use a snap of them being cup finals, but they kinda feel like it.

“There are teams around us that are starting to fall and fall, so we have to try to see if we can hold onto the advantage in the next few games to pull ourselves better in the mix or move away from it.”

Holbeach is also on the trip as he visits 15th, Quorn, who has enjoyed good form in recent weeks.

The Tigers are currently on the hunt for their third coach of the season after parting ways with Gary Frost by mutual consent this week.

The Deeping Rangers will make a welcome return to Haydon Whitham Stadium when they host sixth-placed Heather St Johns this weekend.

Eleven of Rangers’ last 13 games have been away from home and Clarets boss Daniel French is looking to improve his performance following last Saturday’s 4-0 loss at Melton Town.

French said: “It’s part of the league to have all these away games because everything is going to happen and we are going to end up playing the same amount at home, but hopefully we can show ourselves the better. next matches.

Deeping beefed up his attacking options by recruiting forward Marcus Pancho, who recently moved to the area and previously played for Enfield Town in the Isthmian League.

Bourne also has a home game in Division One as they entertain Birstall United at JJ Mac Stadium.
