Star hoping for a record crowd against leaders
awaited return from injury in that game and promptly scored twice during an impressive 20-minute outing as a substitute. Plummer must decide whether to risk him from the start tomorrow.
Lynn, who arrive in the city in possession of a 100 per cent away record, are normally cheered on by a threefigure following on the road.
The club bossed by former Wisbech chief Gary Setchell recently failed in a bid to sign Star defender Richard Jones. Local man Liam Harrold is likely to play up front for Lynn.
The match is being sponsored by The Square Cafe of Vicarage Farm Road.
HOLBEACH hope to take out their frustration on title rivals Long Buckby tomorrow.
The Tigers are seething over the manner of their 1-0 Boxing Day loss at King’s Lynn in a top-of-the-table UCL Premier Division showdown.
They saw two strong penalty appeals turned down and felt a clear foul went unpunished in the buildup to the only goal at the Walks.
And they now intend to take out their anger on 100 per cent recordholders Buckby at Carters Park tomorrow.
Boss John Chand said: “The referee got all of the critical decisions wrong at Lynn and I told him as much.
“Having seen the big incidents again on Youtube, it’s clear for everyone to see.
“It’s no disgrace to lose to Lynn, I’m just frustrated about how it happened as are the players.
“We had a good training session during the week though and we are all focused on trying to become the first team to beat Buckby in the league.”
It’s the first of two crunch home clashes in three days for the Tigers. They then host another high-flying team, St Ives, on Monday.
HUNTINGDON boss Ricky Marheineke can’t wait for the club’s biggest game of the season so far.
Third-placed Town host secondplaced Bugbrooke at Jubilee Park tomorrow in a match likely to have a major bearing on the UCL Division One promotion race.
And Marheineke admits it is a match his team cannot afford to lose. He said: “I wouldn’t got as far as saying it is a must-win at this stage of the season, but it’s definitely one where we can’t afford to be beaten.
“We are three points off the top two and certainly don’t want that gap to grow any further.
“It’s a pressure game but one we’re all looking forward to. We tend to play better against the better sides as they don’t try to stifle us so hopefully we can put in a good performance and come out with a decent result.”
Initial fears that Huntingdon ace Ben Colmer suffered a broken leg in a Boxing Day victory over Bourne have thankfully proved unfounded.
He is a major doubt for the Bugbrooke game though after receiving a blow just below the knee.
Bourne themselves have no fixture tomorrow. They do play on Monday though when hosting Raunds.
WISBECH boss Steve Appleby is calling for his team to show character tomorrow.
The Fenmen aim to erase the memory of a bitter Boxing Day defeat at Ely when travelling to table-topping Wroxham in the Ridgeons Premier Division.
Appleby, who was left seething after seeing a number of decisions go against his team at Ely, said: “We’ve shown what we are about by bounc- ing back from defeats before and I’m sure we can have a good go at doing it again.
“It doesn’t get any tougher than going to Wroxham in our league.”
Wisbech, who have defender Anthony Reeve and midfielder Ollie Gale available again, then host Newmarket at the Elgoods Fenland Sta- dium on Monday.
March are without a fixture tomorrow but resume their First Division promotion push at Fakenham on Monday.
And Stamford are another team who have to wait until Monday to play. They entertain New Mills at the Premier Kitchens Arena.
IMPRESSIVE RETURN: Northern Star’s Karl Gibbs.
