Bower targets Boston revenge

Saturday’s match is sponsored by AF Commercial

After losing 2-0 to Hednesford Town last weekend, Guiseley will have revenge on their mind when Boston United visit Nethermoor on Saturday.

The Pilgrims handed Guiseley their heaviest defeat of the season last month at York Street, beating the Lions 5-1 in a result that Mark Bower and his side will be keen to avenge.

“They’re obviously a good side and I’m sure the lads will be keen to get that result at their place out of their system,” he said.

“I’m sure it will be fresh in their memories because it was only three weeks ago.

“But we’ll look forward to the game, we’ve have had a good week’s training and we’ll be ready for it.”

After an impressive 5-0 win against Bradford Park Avenue, Dennis Greene’s men lost 3-1 in midweek to fellow promotion contenders AFC Fylde, leaving them on the same points as the Lions, having played four games more.

Boston’s leading goalscorer Dayle Southwell could come back into the starting XI, having been on the bench for Tuesday’s loss to Fylde, while Adam Boyes will likely lead the line for the Lions having missed the reverse fixture against his former employers.

As ever, we ask those driving to Saturday’s game to use the Netherfield Road car park by way of courtesy to our neighbours.
