United have chance to extend gap at top

Sills and Betteridge Lincolnshire League leaders Skegness United have a chance to put some daylight between themselves and the chasing pack when they travel to CGB Humbertherm on Saturday.

Second placed Cleethorpes Town Reserves are without a fixture so victory for United will see them open a three point gap at the top of the table.

Third placed Gainsborough Town will put pressure on Cleethorpes if they can overcome Boston United Reserves at Marshalls Sports Ground, while Ruston Sports could go fourth with three points from their trip to Louth Town Reserves.

Horncastle Town will be looking for their first win in four games when they travel to Heckington United, while the second strings of Lincoln United and Boston Town cross swords at Ashby Avenue.

Market Rasen Town have home advantage in their bottom-of-the-table clash with Grimsby Borough Reserves.

Skegness Town hope to play their much-postponed Lincolnshire Junior Cup tie against All Star Panthers from Grimsby at Burgh Road.

Meanwhile, only two Sills and Betteridge Lincolnshire League fixtures survived the weather at the weekend and both were mid-table clashes.

Horncastle Town held Sleaford Town Reserves 2-2 at Eslaforde Park, while Hykeham Town climbed into seventh in the table with a comfortable 3-0 win over neighbours Lincoln United Reserves.
