Rushden are unbeaten in the league since the 5th of December – a fact that would be more impressive had the Diamonds actually played a BSP game in that time. However, due to the FA Trophy and the winter weather this will be the lads first campaign fixture in a long while.
There was a fear that the cold weather would effect this game, too, as the icy sections of ground outside Nene Park show (above). However, the pitch is in a flawless condition and the game is to go ahead. All photos taken by Dazzler. Click each pic for a closer look.

Keep checking back during the game for more photos and behind-the-scenes news.
Full time and it finishes 2-1 to the Diamonds. We remain in 8th place, still very much in contention for a play-off place.
