Zak Mills has returned to the Boston United squad for this afternoon’s clash at fellow promotion chasers AFC Fylde.

The defender has been sidelined for five matches due to a recurring Achilles injury.

But he goes straight back into the starting line-up at Kellamergh Park, he and Joe Burgess replacing Stephane Ngamvoulou and John Sands from the team which drew 1-1 with Worcester City last week.

Boston currently sit in fourth in the National League North standings, two places and two points ahead of the Coasters.

The past three meetings between the two sides have seen 10 goals scored.

Fylde have won the past two matches 3-0, with United winning 3-1 at the Jakemans Stadium last season.

Matt Urwin, who was on trial with United in the summer, is in goal for Fylde.

Kick off will be at 3pm.

FYLDE: Urwin, C. Hughes, Langley, Hannugan, Sumner, Baker, Barnes, M. Hughes, Dixon, Hardy, Rowe; Subs: Blinkhorn, Lloyd, Crainey, Charles, Hinchcliffe.

UNITED: Spiess, Marrs, Garner, Piergianni, McEvoy, Mills, Burgess, Roberts, Rollins, Southwell, Hilliard; Subs: Johnson, M. Jones, Ngamvoulou, Felix, Sands.
