Wellingborough face league leaders Peterborough Lions in Midlands Two East (South) looking to bounce back from their East Midlands Cup exit last time out.

Boro gave a good account of themselves against higher-league Luton in the cup and will hope to take the positives from that into what will be a tough game against the Lions.

Boro have kept changes to the mimimum, although a couple of players face late fitness tests.

In the pack, Kyle Danns moves to the back row as Shane McLaurie returns in the second row.

Liam O’Neill drops to the seconds.

In the backs, winger Luke Gardiner is a doubt so Phil Meyer and Shaun Dunett both come on to the bench.

The seconds are away to Peterborough 2nd as they go for a seventh straight win.

The thirds are also in Peterborough but this time to face the Lions’ second string.

Also in Midlands Two East (South), Market Harborough go to bottom side Long Buckby looking for a second win in a row.
