Phil Mason is eyeing revenge when Long Buckby host a Wellingborough Town team containing a number of his former players on Saturday.

Mason managed Wellingborough for a couple of months after leaving Woodford United in September, 2012.

And several of his former Woodford players, including Nat Liburd and Daniel Burke, still strut their stuff at the Dog & Duck.

Liburd and Burke both scored in Wellingborough’s 6-0 success against Buckby in mid-December, and Mason is eager to see that scoreline avenged this weekend.

“It was disappointing when we went there and lost 6-0,” said Mason.

“It was a bit of a blow for a very, very young squad.

“We’re looking forward to trying to avenge that this weekend.

“Wellingborough have got half of my old Woodford team, so I’m well aware of the quality they’ve got in all departments.

“But I try not to worry too much about that because they’ve got a decent budget and I’d expect them to finish in the top five.

£They should do that with the calibre of player they’ve got.”

Buckby have doubts over the fitness of Wes Emery and experienced striker Howard Forinton ahead of this weekend’s fixture at Station Road.

Woodford United are at home to Potton in the UCL KO Cup.
