After Saturday’s win at Bradford (PA), Saints head to Boston United on Tuesday evening for a re-arranged fixture.
This could well be our last ever visit to The Jakemans Stadium as The Pilgrims expect to be moved into their new stadium for next season. We have enjoyed some memorable and high-scoring games at Boston over the years and it has often been a happy hunting ground.
Kevin Wilkin’s side is unbeaten now in 9 league games and currently 3rd behind King’s Lynn Town and York City who played at the weekend, Town winning out to extend their incredible start to the season and to increase their lead at the top and with games in hand. As Chester faltered at Leamington, we jumped up a place courtesy of the win at The Horsfall, goals from Lee Ndlovu and Jimmy Armson securing the points. Lee continued his scoring run, now with 11 league goals in 9 games. New signing Simeon Maye was included on the bench at Park Avenue but must wait for his first minutes.
Further re-arranged fixtures have been announced for Saints on Tuesday 18 February at home against Southport and on the following Tuesday we will try again at Latimer Park.
Boston have forged up the table to sit in 5th place, 5 points behind us. Home form has been especially impressive with a single defeat all season, while overall they have recorded 6 wins from the last 9 games home and away.
