Hinckley United bid to end long run of defeats
Hinckley United face the long journey to North Yorkshire tomorrow in a bid to end their horrendous run in the Blue Square Conference North.
The Knitters have lost 17 of their 18 league games played so far this season, the only win coming way back on August 25 in a 2-1 victory over Boston.
Since then, they have not won a single point and remain rooted to the foot of the division.
Yesterday, they were also deducted by the league the only three points they had won for failing to pay players' wages.

Hinckley are now on zero points and 12 adrift of the next-to-bottom club and it is looking like a long, hard campaign for new manager Carl Heggs and his young squad. The trip to mid-table Harrogate Town is their latest chance to end the run, but few punters will be backing them to get anything from tomorrow's trip.
Near-neighbours Barwell have been enjoying much better fortunes in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier .
The Canaries are handily placed in fifth spot, which would be good enough to get them in the play-offs.
Barwell, who also have games in hand on most of the teams above them, have a home game against Weymouth tomorrow.
It is a big match for both clubs, with the South Coast team just three points and three places behind Barwell.
