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.

Ar Tarn play Yaxley at the Waterworks Field this weekend while Wellingborough Town, who were edged out 1-0 at Kempston on Bank Holiday Monday, face another tough trip to sixth-placed Kirby Muxloe tomorrow.

In Division One this weekend, Irchester United face a tough examination as they welcome second-placed ON Chenecks to Alfred Street.

Raunds Town have home advantage as they take on Lutterworth Athletic while Whitworth, who lost 6-1 to Chenecks on Monday, entertain Potton United.

Bottom side Burton Park Wanderers are on the road at Blackstones while Thrapston Town make the trip across the county to play Long Buckby.
