Wellingborough Town boss Jamie Wright is convinced there are better days ahead for the Doughboys.

Defeat at home to AFC Kempston Rovers in midweek leaves Wellingborough in the bottom two in the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division going into the trip to Boston Town tomorrow (Saturday).

Scott Liebscher (hamstring) is doubtful and Wright said: “If we show the same workrate we have been showing, I’m sure we are going to start getting results.

“We know we need to start winning games.

“I have been concerned, but in the last two matches there are signs that we are starting to gel and playing how we want them to play.”

Desborough Town head to rock-bottom Huntingdon fearing a backlash.

In midweek, Ar Tarn grabbed a 1-1 draw at Northampton Sileby Rangers that rebuilt confidence following the 4-0 reverse at home to Northampton Spencer.

But boss Ian Walker says there’s work to do.

He said: “Huntingdon have a new manager, new players and will be fighting to get out of the position they are in.

“There are no easy games in this division.”

Walker, whose side host Wellingborough Town in the NFA Hillier Cup next Tuesday night, hopes to welcome back Luke Cummins for the trip to Huntingdon.

Rothwell Corinthians boss Shaun Sparrow wants his players to redeem themselves at Deeping Rangers.

On Tuesday night, Division One side Oakham United were 3-2 winners at Sergeants Lawn in the UCL Knockout Cup.

And Sparrow, whose team won 1-0 at Peterborough Northern Star last weekend, felt the display was “sub par”.

He added: “We didn’t give our all and that’s unacceptable. If we keep playing like that, there will be changes.

“The match at Deeping gives the players the chance to redeem themselves.

“We have players coming back and the lads know if they want to stay in the team, they have to perform.”
