Wellingborough resume their Midlands Two East (South) programme knowing it is effectvely win or bust for the rest of the season.

Currently fifth in the table, 14 points off the promotion places, Boro need wins and bonus points from almost every one of their remaining games.

But that will not be easy against a Huntingdon side who were convincing winners at Cut Throat Lane when the sides first met back in September, but have been inconsistent since.

For their part, Boro will be looking to belatedly bounce back from their pre-Christmas defeat by promotion-chasing Bugbrooke.

Boro make numerous changes for the game.

Jon Bolton returns at hooker in place of Jack Whittet while Adam Parker comes in at prop for the injured Adam Danns.

Nick Murphy starts alongside Aidy Butler in the second row as skipper Kyle Danns switches to the back row alongside Chris Shipman and ex-Colt Liam O’Neill who has recently returned to the area.

The backs are unchanged although Tom Mair is back on the bench after recovering from a broken leg.

The seconds are at home Towcestrians 2nd while the thirds host Huntingdon 2nd.

The Colts head to Old Scouts in the National Plate while the ladies host Southwold on Sunday.
