Rothwell Corinthians head to AFC Kempston Rovers tomorrow (Saturday) looking to end the only unbeaten record in the ChromaSport & Trophies UCL Premier Division.
Kempston are unbeaten in 22 games – 14 wins, eight draws – and that leaves them second behind Leicester Nirvana.
Corinthians boss Shaun Sparrow said: “I tipped Kempston to win the league at the start of the season
“And they are unbeaten so far, so it looks like I know what I’m talking about!
“I went for Kempston because they brought in good players who are tried and tested.
“They know that to win a league sometimes you have to dig in and get results when you are not playing at their best.
“We will turn up and have a crack at them.”
Corinthians make the trip to Hillgrounds Leisure this weekend in confident mood having won 3-1 at Northampton Spencer on Monday.
Striker Rob Foster netted twice – his first goals for the club – and Sparrow said: “That’s a weight off his mind.
“Rob has been playing well enough, but when you’re a striker it’s all about how many goals you score. Rob feels better now he’s got those two goals.
“It was a well-deserved win at Spencer. We played well from start to finish.
“We were 1-0 up after four minutes, so I had to be pleased with that.
“That performance gives us some confidence going into a tough run of games.”
Desborough Town also enjoyed a win on Monday as goals from Leo Adams and Jason Turner sealed a 2-1 home success over Sileby Rangers.
