Skegness Town will look to put their semi-final frustrations behind them as they return to league action on Saturday with another Lincolnshire derby.

The Lilywhites - who lost 3-1 at Winterton Rangers in their Lincs Senior Trophy tie on Wednesday - host Deeping Rangers (KO 3pm), who sit a place and two points behind them in the table.

"Their form has picked up recently and I don't think there is an easy game in this league," manager Nathan Collins said.

"We're at home and we're looking to win it but we'll have to be 100 per cent at it if we're going to get a win against Deeping."

Collins has been impressed by his opponents' run which has seen them lose just once in their past seven matches, to leaders Long Eaton.

"Fair play to them, they're on a decent run of form," he added.

"Deeping are a good club, I've always liked them. I've played against them and managed against them (with Boston Town), and at this level they're always a decent side."
