A local derby at the Dog & Duck headlines another busy night of action in the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League this evening (Tuesday).

In-form AFC Rushden & Diamonds will be looking to continue their charge up the Premier Division table when they entertain Desborough Town.

Andy Peaks’ side claimed a comfortable 3-0 success over Oadby Town on Saturday and face an Ar Tarn team who have been struggling in recent weeks and were beaten 3-2 at Newport Pagnell at the weekend having been 2-0 up at one stage.

Wellingborough Town lost 5-4 at Thurnby Nirvana on Saturday and will be hoping to bounce back tonight when they head to Oadby.

There is also midweek action in Division One with Thrapston Town taking on St Neots Town Saints at Chancery Lane while Stewarts & Lloyds’ quest for a first point this season takes them to Bourne Town.
