ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division club Peterborough Northern Star won’t let FA Vase heartache ruin the rest of their season.
Star crashed out of the competition in the quarter-finals last Saturday after being beaten 4-3 in extra time by STL Northern Leaguers Dunston UTD at Chestnut Avenue.
Clearly suffering a hangover from that result the city side went on to lose at St Ives Town on Tuesday night.
Star take on local rivals Deeping Rangers tomorrow at Outgang Road where boss Chris Plummer hopes to see his side kick-start their bid for a top four finish.
He said: “We were obviously disappointed to lose last Saturday but we have to forget about that now and try and concentrate on making a strong finish in the league. After the start we made to the season I would be disappointed if we could not finish in fourth place.
“We have a couple of massive weeks coming up, starting with the Deeping game and it’s important that we get some kind of a result at Outgang Road.”
Star will be without midfield maestro Jimmy Dean who is suspended while Mark Cox is also out injured.
Two players who will make the short trip to Deeping are Jon Stead and Nathan Horne. They missed the Vase match because they were in Las Vegas on a `stag-do`.
“We have a couple of players out but otherwise we are in good shape for the game and will go there feeling positive that we can get a result,” added Plummer.
