Dieseruvwe back for Gloucester clash

4 months ago By Craig Singleton

Easter Monday action is next on the agenda for Boston United with the visit of Gloucester City to The Jakemans Stadium.

The Pilgrims will be aiming for a quick response following their last-gasp defeat at the hands of Kidderminster Harriers on Good Friday.

Gloucester, meanwhile, boosted their standing in the top half of the National League North table with a 2-1 home win over Stalybridge Celtic on Saturday.

Tim Harris’ side have arguably been the surprise package of the season and have remained on the edge of the play-off picture throughout.

United boss Adam Murray will welcome back Mani Dieseruvwe after the on-loan Kidderminster striker was unable to face his parent club on Friday.

Nat Brown, meanwhile, will have his groin injury assessed further after missing the trip to Aggborough.

Last season’s corresponding fixture ended 1-0 to the Pilgrims, who have won six successive home league games against the Tigers.

City were 3-1 victors in this season’s reverse fixture on August Bank Holiday Monday.

Easter Monday’s match referee is Kelvin Sarsfield and kick-off is at 3.00pm.

Updates for those not in attendance will be available on Twitter.
