Daren Young believes that S&L Corby will end their UCL Premier Division campaign in the safe waters of mid-table.

As things stand, the Occupation Road outfit are just six points above the bottom two but they will go into this evening’s clash with Boston Town in confident mood following their excellent 2-1 win at Deeping on Saturday.

And manager Young thinks that come May, his side will no longer be in a “false position.”

He said: “I’ve said for a while that we’ve been there or thereabouts and at the weekend we showed great resilience and workrate and took our chances.

“They had more possession but we played the better football, had a certain penalty turned down and a goal disallowed.

“I’m hoping the result will turn a few heads. We’re in a flase position at the minute and I’m certain we’ll finish a lot higher in the table.

“We’ve got games in hand on the sides immediately above us and if we can win those then we’ll be okay.”

Wellingborough Town go in search of their fourth straight victory when they entertain AFC Kempston Rovers at the Dog & Duck.

Craig Adams’ men moved out of the bottom two at the weekend as they eased past Sleaford by a comfortable 3-0 margin.

In Division One, bottom side Burton Park Wanderers have a derby clash to contend with as they make the trip to Rothwell Corinthians.

Raunds, who have collected just four points from a possible 27, head to second-placed Eynesbury and Rushden & Higham are on home turf against ON Chenecks.
