Stand-in boss Lee Clarke has called on St Neots Town to climb out of their mini slump tonight.

The Saints have failed to win any of their last five games in all competitions – a miserable run that Clarke wants to see end when they host Kettering Town in a Southern League Premier Division clash at the Premier Plus Stadium (7.45pm).

Clarke, in charge with manager Andy Davies away, said: “It’s a big game for us, and one in which we need to deliver the right performance to get the right result.

“I’ll lift the players before the game and hopefully get the confidence flowing again.

“The result is one thing, but I also want a bit more out of the players. I want to see that they want to win the game as much as I do.

You may also want to watch:

“If we don’t get a result tonight, it will be a 10 days to get through before our next game on September 24.”

St Ives Town are also in action tonight as they travel to Dunstable (7.45pm) – and they could also do with a positive result.
