JASON Lee reckons that Bishop’s Stortford arrive at the Jakemans Stadium tonight owing the Pilgrims a favour.

As the Pilgrims stuttered on their way to a 1-1 draw with basement side Blyth Spartans on Saturday, strugglers Stortford thumped promotion hopefuls Guiseley 4-1.

And Lee reckons he deserves some of the credit.

Looking back at the weekend win, he said: “That’s a great result for them.

“Their assistant (Colin Reid) rang me this morning, he asked me what I thought (about Guiseley) and how they should go about it.

“I think he owes me something now.

“It’s a tremendous result for them. It shows what they’re all about.”

Marc Newsham popped up with a 94th minute winner as Boston earned a 1-0 victory at Woodside Park in September.

But despite the Blues sitting in 19th spot in the table, Lee knows the Guiseley victory proves this evening’s fixture (KO 7.45pm) proves the visitors are no pushovers.

“They’re no mugs and that gives us something to think about,” Lee added.

“We’ll be prepared and won’t take them lightly.

“Sometimes these teams at the bottom are harder to put away than the ones around you.

“Only the Man Uniteds and Chelseas are more consistent than most, everybody else has this problem (when facing struggling sides).”
