JASON Lee goes into tomorrow night’s FA Cup replay at Kidsgrove Athletic confident his side have the ability to book a place in the next round.

The winners of the second qualifying round replay (KO 7.45pm) will host Lock Buckby on October 15.

After Saturday’s poor goalless draw at home to Kidsgrove, Lee is expecting better.

Boston manager Lee said: “I like to think we can go there and get the job done.

“We look fitter and stronge than them.

“We don’t go with fear or dread, we go hoping to get the result we should have got (on Saturday).”

Reflecting on the goalless draw, where the Pilgrims began poorly but spurned several second-half chances, Lee added: “We could have done without the extra game, but they’ve been dogged and had a man sent off as well.

“Credit to them but from our points of view we wanted to get the job done.

“We had more than enough opportunities to win this game and we haven’t taken them.” Dave Walker, who was sent off for two bad challenges on Paul Bastock and Kevin Austin, will be eligible to play.
