Boston United are the visitors to St James Park on Saturday. This is one to keep an eye on as the weather forecast is poor with strong winds and rain throughout Friday night and all day Saturday.
Saints put in a strong performance at Spennymoor last Saturday, enjoying the better of the chances and returning home with an important away point. Spennymoor won against Altrincham in midweek emphasising that they are a team in a strong vein of form and now sit level with Brackley bon 48 points although they have played two more games.
Meanwhile Saints are 5th and Boston 3rd with The Pilgrims leaping above Brackley following their recent fine run of form including the home defeat of Kevin Wilkin’s side just three weeks ago in a game we created enough chances to have won before succumbing to the late counter-punch. Boston have won five straight games including the last three away fixtures and will come to SJP full of confidence.
Lee Ndlovu returned to the side at Spennymoor following injury but both experienced centre-backs Thierry Audel and Kelvin Langmead were unavailable for selection meaning Kevin selected Glenn Walker to partner Gaz Dean. Dan Holman made a first appearance from the bench for many weeks after being side-lined through injury. Carl Baker made his first start since October and came closest to getting the vital break-through goal that might have earned all three points.
