Horncastle Town will be at full strength for their showdown against Sills and Betteridge Lincolnshire League title rivals Skegness Town at The Wong tomorrow (Saturday), kick off 3pm.

Scott Lowman and Chris Smith are expected to shake off injuries while midfielder Richard Jackson is also expected to figure.

Their availability will add to the selection headaches for manager Paul Johnson ahead of a clash which could make - or break - Town’s title dreams.

They are currently third in the table, three points behind leaders and champions Skegness who have played a game more.

Town. who have one eye on the weather, are hoping for a big attendance with Skegness, as usual, predicted to bring a sizeable following to The Wong.

Johnson certainly has plenty of options with Tony Edwards, Michael Harness, Mickey Stones and Darren Bent all pushing for places in attack.

Skegness go into the game on the back of a 3-1 defeat at Wyberton last Saturday - a result that threw the title race wide open.
