United aiming to topple league leaders

By Craig Singleton

Boston United entertain Vanarama National League North leaders Chorley at The Jakemans Stadium on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3.00pm).

Fresh from their exhilarating last-gasp victory at Southport last weekend, the Pilgrims will be aiming to make a return to winning ways on home turf against Jamie Vermiglio's title chasers.

The Magpies climbed back to the summit last Saturday courtesy of a 3-0 win over Kidderminster Harriers, at the same time nearest rivals Stockport County were losing 1-0 at Brackley Town.

United boss Craig Elliott has reported no new injury worries and all eyes will focus on whether Nicky Walker earns a recall to the starting XI after a starring and match-winning role from the bench at Southport.

New signing Tom Clare could feature for the first time following his midweek loan move from Bradford City.

Last season's corresponding fixture ended 2-0 to the Pilgrims, with Ashley Hemmings and Kabongo Tshimanga on target.

Saturday's match referee is Aaron Bannister, who has already taken charge of United's home fixture against Blyth Spartans and away clash at Alfreton Town so far this season.

Matchday updates for those not in attendance will be published on Twitter via @bostonunited — starting with team news at 2.00pm.
