Derby bragging rights will be at stake when Blackstones host Bourne Town on Tuesday.

The near neighbours clash in a United Counties League Division One match at the Torney Limited Stadium (kick-off 3pm).

Both sides go into the contest on the back of a decent run of form with Stones having picked up seven points from their last three games while Bourne have only lost twice in their previous seven outings.

Stones boss Lloyd Burton feels the Wakes will start as favourites for the match which will see Bourne players John Swales, Dan Wilson, Herbie Panting and Thomas Klinkovics face their former club.

Burton said: "I would class us as the underdogs being a new team, as in just coming together for three games.

"Bourne have been building up slowly which shows they must be getting something right because they are picking up really well.

"I just hope we can put a good show on for everybody because a lot of the lads will all know each other and the bragging rights are there to be had."

Stones go into the contest after a 3-0 home win over Saffron Dynamo last weekend while Bourne were beaten 4-1 at home by Kirby Muxloe.

The Wakes' penalty woes again struck as, after missing two spot kicks in the previous week's win over Birstall, Corey Newman this time saw his penalty saved with the game goalless.

Lucca Watson-Quilter then put Kirby ahead before equalised ahead of half-time when Danny Miller headed home from a free-kick.

However, parity lasted just 11 minutes of the second half though as Muxloe regained their lead as Adam Parry scored from a Kyle Tott corner.

Tott then further increased the visitors' lead with a fine individual goal midway through the second half before Jude Coates sealed their success with five minutes remaining as the Wakes conceded four goals against their Leicestershire visitors for the second time this season.

Manager Steve Wilson said: "Kirby were a good side and I was quite impressed with them.

"They ran out worthy winners and you can't get away from that fact because they were sharper than us.

"We have missed another penalty though and their first goal was a freak one which has killed us.

"If you give us one goal from the penalty and take one off them then it makes the final scoreline a lot closer.

"We missed another good chance as well and we were in the game most of the time.

"I was a little bit disappointing and downhearted at the end but, after I had looked at it, it maybe wasn't so bad as I thought on the day.

"I am still quite happy with everything and won't be pressing any panic buttons because we were nearer to Kirby then the scoreline suggested.

"We'll just look forward to the Blackstones game now which is a match that has everything good about it."
