United chasing back-to-back home wins

6 months ago By Craig Singleton

A second successive home win is in Boston United’s sights when the Pilgrims play host to Darlington 1883 on Saturday afternoon.

Fresh from Tuesday’s 3-1 victory over Chorley at The Jakemans Stadium, United will now be targeting back-to-back wins for the first time during Adam Murray’s tenure as manager.

Goals from Adam Chapman, Jan Yeomans and Lewis Hilliard inspired their midweek comeback, which was the Pilgrims’ fifth straight Tuesday night victory on home soil this season.

Darlington are currently eighth, having spent the entire season in the upper echelons of the division following their promotion as Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division champions last April.

Former United full-back David Ferguson is likely to feature for the Quakers but fellow full-back Liam Marrs is ruled out through injury.

Six players remain sidelined for United, including Joe Burgess (ankle), Marcus Marshall (thigh), Herve Pepe-Ngoma (knee), Grant Roberts (knee), Gregg Smith (ankle) and Jason St Juste (leg).

Saturday’s match referee is Martyn Rawcliffe and kick-off is at 3.00pm.

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