Boston United are desperate not to become the second victims of current Vanarama North whipping boys Hyde.

The Tigers sit bottom of the table, having recorded just one win and three draws from their 13 league contests to date.

However, on Saturday they will arrive at the Jakemans Stadium at a time when the Pilgrims are out of form and looking to put their two-game losing streak behind them.

“They’ve not been on the best run, but we don’t want to lose to them,” said United striker Marc Newsham.

“We’re disppointed with the last few results and we know it’s got to change at some point.

“We’ve got the players and we can get on a run.”

Hyde’s only victory so far came on September 20 - a home 5-1 drubbing of Lowestoft Town.

But since then Hyde have lost three and drawn one of their matches - conceding 16 times in the process.

As well as a 3-3 league draw with Chorley, Hyde have been beaten by Hednesford (4-1) and Leamington (4-0) as well as an FA cup defeat to Marine (5-4).

Their other league draws have come against Gloucester City (1-1) and Tamworth (2-2).
