After a trip to St Ives in midweek, the Ducks are on the road again today (Saturday) when they visit Daventry Town.

Daventry currently sit seventh place in the Calor Southern League Division One Central table, but the Northamptonshire club have up to six games in hand on some teams following cup commitments.

Ahead of the game Ducks boss Joyce said he felt Daventry were in a false league position.

He said: “I think where they are in the table isn’t a fair reflection of their abilities.

“I believe that they will be challenging Dunstable for the title come the end of the season when they have played all their games in hand.

“The good news is that we have a fully fit squad for that match now that Richard Armstrong has served his suspension.

“That means we have the ability to rotate players as we have a lot of games coming up in a short space of time.

“This also gives us a chance to hopefully get some momentum, because things have been rather stop-start over the last month or so.”

Joyce added he had no plans to add to the squad.

He said: “I am comfortable with the players we have here at the moment and I feel we are ready for the challenges ahead.”
