Preview: Boston United (A)

City make their final away trip of the season this afternoon as they travel to The Jakemans Community Stadium, home of Boston United, for the first time since the Pilgrims moved to their new 6,000 capacity home.

City come off the back of a commendable point at home to Chorley thanks to Fabien Robert’s late equaliser. Lee Mansell’s men are unbeaten in three whilst seventh-placed Boston have recorded a win, a loss and a draw in their last three matches and were held one a piece at the weekend at Telford.

Boston’s Manager Paul Cox made the move from previous club Kettering in January and he could secure his side a play off spot with a victory if other results go their way. A win would still put them in prime position going into their last match of the season away to Farsley next weekend, but Kettering, Alfreton and Spennymoor are all still in the hunt.

“We have to finish the season off strongly now. If we can get two wins from two that would be great. We now need to assess everyone’s fitness because it’s a very tight turnaround of fixtures. This game will be an opportunity for some of the younger lads to perform and try and get a deal for next year.” - Lee Mansell
