Game 2/42.

After a positive performance against Coalville Town at the weekend, Stuart Boardley’s side will be looking to get more points on the board in Northamptonshire.

Last season, Leiston went down 4-1 at home to ‘The Diamonds’, with Christy Finch netting for the Blues. In the reverse fixture in March, the Blues drew 1-1 thanks to a Matt Rutterford goal. Leiston put their first point on the board on Saturday as they drew 1-1 with Coalville. Will Davies put them in front but Adam McGurk netted from the spot for the visitors to steal a point. AFC Rushden & Diamonds meanwhile defeated Barwell 2-0 away from home thanks to goals from Jack Ashton and Liam Dolman.

Jake Jessup will come into the squad to make up the sixteen (Leiston only had 15 players in their squad at the weekend). Spanish duo Albert Serra Parrondo and Sebastia Pons Llado are still unavailable.
