Boston United face a league double this week - beginning with Saturday’s visit to FC United of Manchester.

The Pilgrims have won all four of the away matches they have played against the Red Rebels, since their founding in 2005.

However, FC United came out on top in the meeting between the two sides at the Jakemans Stadium this season, claiming a 3-2 victory in early September.

Kick off at Broadhurst Park will be at 3pm.

This will be followed by the home National League North contest against Curzon Ashton on Tuesday (KO 7.45pm).

Boston have won their last three games against the Nash - a league double last season - 2-1 at home and 2-0 on the road - plus a 2-0 UniBond Challenge Cup success in Greater Manchester back in 2010.

Boston will be hoping defender Nat Brown is fit and available for selection after pulling out of the FA Trophy defeat at Witton Albion after pulling his groin in the warm-up.
