Spalding United host Gresley Rovers in the Northern Premier League

A triple bill of home games gets underway for Spalding United on Saturday.

The Tulips host Gresley Rovers in the Northern Premier League Midlands Division match at the Sir Halley Stewart ground.

That's followed by a home match with National League North side Boston United on Tuesday night in the semi-final of the Lincolnshire Senior Cup.

The hat-trick haul of home games is then completed next Saturday when Lye Town are the visitors in the league.

Elliot Sandy's side go into the run of home games having returned to winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Corby Town on Saturday.

A strong travelling support helped cheer the Tulips to a vital victory with Sandy hoping the home fans turn out in force again on Saturday.

He said: "I was absolutely delighted with the win last Saturday and we've now got to go again this weekend.

"We're back at home and, after our fans travelled in their numbers last weekend and we could hear them throughout the game, I hope we see as many as possible again on Saturday."

Deeping Rangers and Bourne Town both have home games in their quest for honours in the United Counties League.

The Clarets host Ashby Ivanhoe in the Premier Division North as they look to continue their push for the play-offs.

They will be looking for a fourth successive league win with co-boss Scott Bogusz eager to back up recent victories over Hucknall, Belper United and Eastwood.

He commented: "We need to back up the last few results massively.

"There is no point doing what we've just done if we then go and let ourselves down in the next game.

"We've done that three or four times in the last two seasons so it would be nice to break it and keep this run going."

The Wakes are expected to have a full strength squad at their disposal as they look to secure their 23rd league win of the season.

Manager Michael Goode said: ""We're really happy with the squad. It's strong.

"We are now in a situation where we've got to give everybody enough time on the pitch to ensure they are ready to play at full throttle when required rather than some of the sayings which we've had in the past about playing well and staying in.

"It's not rotation but careful consideration of the selection and we also need to make sure that we enjoy the wins for a Saturday and Sunday because otherwise the season disappears and you don't actually soak up what you're achieving."
