Can Boston United boss Jason Lee end his Solihull Moors hoodoo?

Jumping for joy! Ben Fairclough is back.

Jumping for joy! Ben Fairclough is back.

Jason Lee is desperate to end his Solihull Moors jinx.

The Boston United manager has lost all three of his matches as Pilgrims manager against the Moors... each one a 1-0 defeat.

But he hopes to put that right tonight.

He told The Standard: “Solihull? What can I say? They’re just a bogey team.

“It’s just not happened for us against them, no matter what we’ve tried – and we’ve tried a few things home and away.

“There’s been a few things we’ve changed this season and I’d like to change that stat as well.”

The United boss also stated that having Ben Fairclough and Spencer Weir-Daley back from suspension is like ‘signing two new players’.

A niggling ankle injury may see Weir-Daley remain sidelined, but Fairclough is ready for action.

He told The Standard: “It’s been a long three weeks sitting in the stands, but the lads have done well.

“They won their first two games and it’s a shame they couldn’t beat Guiseley and get the three points (on Saturday, Boston lost 3-1).

“It’s easier to watch when they’re winning.”

Fairclough, who has scored four goals this season, hopes to earn a starting place, but won’t take anything for granted.

“It’d be nice to walk straight back in but it’s up to the gaffer,” he added.

“The lads have done well without me, and if I have to work hard to get back in then I’ll do that.”

Fairclough and Weir-Daley both saw red in the 3-1 FA Cup defeat to Altrincham.

Tonight’s Blue Square Bet North clash kicks off at 7.45pm at York Street.
