LEE Canoville says Boston United’s 6-1 defeat at Altrincham was one of the worst days of his career.

But now he has a chance to exorcise his demons as the two sides meet on Saturday.

“That was one of my worst games in football,” reflected Canoville.

“I was devastated to concede six goals, but the manner of the defeat was bad as well. It still hurts now.

On that day in October, Damian Reeves grabbed a hat-trick while James Lawrie, Michael Twiss and Astley Mulholland were also on target as the Pilgrims were humiliated.

Jason Lee grabbed his side’s consolation.

But the Pilgrims are much-improved from the side who suffered that drubbing.

They have climbed the Blue Square Bet North table and sit one place behind eighth-placed Altrincham in the table.

Victory would see the Pilgrims draw level on points, although the Robins currently have a superior goal difference of 17.

With four wins from five league matches, United are hitting form at the right time.

“We’ve had some changes in personnel, but I’m sure the lads are itching, like I am, to play that game,” said Canoville, intent on revenge.

“Saturday can’t come round fast enough.”
