Eynesbury Rovers are set to have a huge say in the destination of the United Counties League Premier Division title.

Leicester Nirvana and AFC Kempston Rovers are deadlocked in the battle for glory with only two matches of the season remaining – and both teams still have to face Eynesbury.

Mark Ducket takes his side to Kempston tonight (7.45pm) before they host Leicester Nirvana on the final day of the season. Kempston are assured of promotion already regardless of whether or not they capture the title.

And Eynesbury have an incentive of their own as they bid to nail down fourth place after making huge progress since the early-December appointment of Ducket.

He said: “We are going to have a big say in who wins the league and that is the second-best thing to being in a position to win it ourselves.

“We will go there looking to put in another good performance and pick up another notable results – and the same goes for Saturday against Leicester Nirvana as well.

Rovers’ fine form has nosedived of late with two disappointing home defeats at the hands of Boston Town and Northampton Spencer sandwiched a lacklustre derby draw at relegated Huntingdon.

St Neots Town complete their Southern League Premier Division campaign tonight with a rearranged home game against Chesham at the Premier Plus Stadium (7.45pm).

Saints have gone eight matches without a victory and three points tonight could boost interim boss Andy Davies’ hopes of securing the post on a permanent basis.
