BOSTON Town don’t want to be spreading any festive cheer to derby rivals Sleaford Town today.

The Poachers host Sleaford at Tattershall Road this afternoon (KO 3pm), aiming to extend their guests’ woeful record.

Sleaford are on a club record run of nine consecutive defeats in all competitions.

And stand-in Boston boss Lori Borbely would love to see that reach double figures.

“We want to win every game and this is no different,” he told The Standard ahead of the UCL Premier match.

“Derby games are different and Sleaford will always be difficult to play.

“In a game like that there will be tough challenges and we have to make sure we do things the right way.”

To add insult to injury, Town midfielder Sam Kirton recently joined the side from Sleaford.

Borbely will be in charge of the club for the second time, after the resignation of Martyn Lakin.

His spell began with a 3-2 victory at Thrapston last Saturday.

Chairman Mick Vines hopes to have a new manager appointed within days.
