Elliott plotting winning formula

By Craig Singleton

Boston United are back on the road in Vanarama National League North on Saturday afternoon.

The Pilgrims travel to FC United of Manchester (kick-off 3.00pm) aiming to bounce back from Tuesday's 2-0 defeat at Leamington.

The Red Rebels, meanwhile, were squandering a 3-1 half-time lead to lose 4-3 at home to neighbours Ashton United, just days after a 5-1 opening day defeat at the hands of Stockport County.

United boss Craig Elliott could hand a full debut to Harrogate Town loanee Toby Lees, who emerged from the bench late in Tuesday's defeat to Leamington.

Jay Rollins is not yet fit to return after adductor and groin troubles.

The Pilgrims were beaten 2-1 in last season's corresponding fixture after ending the game with only nine men. Gregg Smith and Brad McGowan were red-carded after half-time.

Saturday's match referee is Elliott Swallow.

POSTCODE FOR SAT NAV: M40 0FJ.
BUSA COACH DEPARTURE: 10.30am.
UNITED COLOURS: Amber/Black.
