INTRIGUING BOXING DAY CLASH

Two in-form teams will dish out a post-Christmas dessert that will leave you asking for more.

Spalding United host local rivals Lincoln United in a game that features the Tulips’ boss facing his former team for the first time.

Dave Frecklington spent three successful years at Ashby Avenue and took his charges to the play-offs last season.

His present side now sit third in the table only one point off joint leaders Shaw Lane and Newcastle Town after three wins on the bounce.

The Whites suffered their first league defeat for a long time at home to AFC Rushden and Diamonds on Tuesday evening.

However Big Sam Wilkinson’s men are aiming for a play-off place and have the advantage of games in hand against most teams above them.

The stage is set for a close encounter.

One thing is guaranteed. There will be no exchange of gifts between these two rivals.
