Steve Walker's Desborough Town take on AFC Kempston tonight

Stewarts & Lloyds and Desborough Town are both back in ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division action tonight (Tuesday).

S&L claimed a fine 4-2 success at their local rivals on Saturday as they fought back from 2-0 down after Daniel Grainger’s double had put Ar Tarn in control.

But goals from Danny Pownall, Lee Thompson, Jamie O’Neill and John Dean turned the game on its head.

And Kevin Byrne’s side have the chance to make it two wins in a row this evening as they take on bottom side Harborough Town, who have lost six out of six in the league so far.

Desborough, meanwhile, will be looking to bounce back from that disappointment at the weekend when they take on AFC Kempston at the S6 Stadium.

Elsewhere, Irchester United will be hoping to hit back from a shock 1-0 defeat to Harpole in the NFA Junior Cup at the weekend when they head to Northampton Spencer in Division One.

And Burton Park Wanderers are also in action at Latimer Park as they take on Kettering Orchard Park in the first round of the Junior Cup, having suffered a 1-0 defeat at Olney Town in the league on Saturday.
