Pilgrims hand out two debuts, but keeper Henry is missing for Witton clash

Dion-Curtis Henry turns away the danger.
Dion-Curtis Henry turns away the danger.

Dennis Greene has handed debuts to Josh Robinson and Ben Clappison as Boston United look to shrug off last week’s 9-2 thrashing at Fylde and progress in the FA Trophy.

The York City duo, who have arrived on loan, are two of three changes to the starting XI for today’s match at Witton Albion.

The other is keeper Michael Emery, who replaces Dion-Curtis Henry after he was recalled by Peterborough United, a twist of irony seeing Posh’s contest postponed.

Doncaster Rovers’ Joe Pugh has been named on the bench and could become the seventh debut dished out in three matches by Greene.

Waide Fairhurst, Kalern Thomas, Cameron Johnson, Courtney Wildin, Harry Vince and Callum Chippendale, who has been ill in the week, are not named in the squad, along with James Goode, as Boston have reached the quota of five loan players allowed in a matchday squad.

Grant Roberts, Shane Clarke, Joe Burgess and Liam Agnew remain injured.

Witton sit two divisions below Boston.

Kick off will be at 3pm.

WITTON: Roberts, Haywood, Devine, Wilson, Lycett, Williams, Noon, Owens, Hopley, Tames, Bauress; Subs (not used): Brown, Hickman, Eves, Omotola, Garner.

UNITED: Emery, Joe Robinson, Josh Robinson, Brown, Gordon, Miles, Hilliard, Clappinson, Smith, Marshall, Rollins; Subs (not used): Maguire, St Juate, Pugh, Peace-McDonald, Payne.
