Boston United midfielder Indy Aujla wants to see his name on the scoresheet.

The 25-year-old has made two appearances for the Pilgrims, since joining the club.

And after impressing on both occasions, he now wants to start banging in the goals to complement his performances.

“Hopefully, I can chip in with a few goals,” Aujla told The Standard.

“If I can get in there at centre mid, I’m hoping to bag a few.”

Aujla’s next opportunity to do just that will be Saturday’s FA Cup third qualifying round contest at Skrill North rivals Brackley Town (KO 3pm).

United and Brackley were involved in two memorable battles last season.

Goals from Ben Fairclough and Spencer Weir-Daley saw United earn a 2-0 victory at St James’ Park, Dennis Greene’s second match in charge of the club.

But Brackley got their revenge in the final match of campaign, leaving York Street with a 4-3 success.

On that day, Marc Newsham, Nathan Stainfield and Anton Foster scored for Boston, with Newsham also missing a penalty.

Jon Brady’s Saints needed a replay to see off Gresley 1-0 last Tuesday night, following a 1-1 draw at home.

Boston eased through following a routine 4-0 win at Stafford Rangers, with Weir-Daley and Ricky Miller both grabbing two goals each.

The contest will be a tough task for the Pilgrims.

Brackley - second in the league table - are unbeaten in all competitions so far this season, having won eight and drawn four of their 12 contests.

At home they have won four and drawn three from seven matches.
