Pilgrims on the road for Ashton assignment

1 week ago By Craig Singleton

Boston United are back on the road in Vanarama National League North on Saturday afternoon with a visit to Ashton United (kick-off 3.00pm).

United's last visit to Hurst Cross unfolded in February 2010 when the Pilgrims won 2-0 en route to UniBond Premier League play-off glory.

Ashton won promotion via the play-offs at the end of last season and have amassed 13 points from their opening 14 fixtures, including one win and two draws from six on home soil.

Boston boss Craig Elliott could opt to shuffle his pack following Tuesday's disappointing 3-1 home defeat at the hands of Brackley Town.

Sebastian Malkowski will continue in goal with George Willis completing his three-match ban, while defender Ben Middleton will conclude his suspension too.

Jordan Slew is expected to start for the Pilgrims after goalscoring cameos from the bench in each of United’s last two fixtures.

Saturday's match referee is David McNamara, who last took charge of the Pilgrims on September 1 against Kidderminster Harriers.

POSTCODE FOR SAT NAV: OL6 8DY.
BUSA COACH DEPARTURE: 10.30am.
UNITED COLOURS: Amber/Black.
