Boston Town are keen to lay down the marker when they face Stewarts and Lloyds Corby tomorrow.
The Poachers will face their opponents for the first time this season when they clash at Tattershall Road (KO 3pm).
Boss Ian Dunn wants his side to stamp out their authority head of the return fixture at Occupation Road 10 days later.
“They’re a different beast at home to what they are away,” he said.
“We’ve got to get at them at home, on the bigger pitch.
“We’ve got to know what their strengths and weaknesses are, we’ve got the quality to beat them.”
Town currently sit in ninth spot in the United Counties League Premier Division, while struggling S&L are third-bottom, having won just six of their 28 matches.
Boston will see Saturday’s clash as a chance to get back to winning ways following defeats against Newport Pagnell and St Ives last week.
Left back Lawrence Heyward looks set to make his Poachers debut, while striker Ben Good will be unavailable due to injury.
The loss of Good will probably mean Dunn pulling on his boots to play the target-man role against a side with a tradition of being physically strong.
Dunn added: “We had them watched last weekend.
“They’re pretty much everything you expect them to be.
“They work hard for each other, they’re pretty solid and tough.
“Whatever quality they have, you can always expect something similar with them.”
