Boston United have been hit with a series of player unavailabilities ahead of kick off against Hednesford Town this afternoon.

Full backs Zak Mills and Dylan McEvoy have both been ruled out through injury, joining long-term absentees Dayle Southwell and Richard Jones on the sidelines.

Influential midfielder Jordan Richards is also unavailable after being recalled from his loan by Notts County.

And with Pilgrims Kyle Dixon, Ryan Robbins, Nicky Walker and Harry Limb all involved with other clubs today, Cameron Johnson is joined on the bench by youngsters Jack Dykes, Harry Vince, Kofi Ross and Harry Payne.

However, Greene’s starting XI still looks stron with keeper Fabian Spiess beginning his home debut with Liam Marrs, Carl Piergianni, Scott Garner and Tommy Cooney, in his first United appearance, in front of him.

Boston’s midfield will comprise Grant Roberts, Lewis Hilliard and wingers Jay Rollins and Kaine Felix , while Mark Jones and John Sands begin in attack.

However, the situation is nowhere near as desperate as the time United travelled to face the Pitmen two seasons ago when Dennis Greene had to bring in four loanees for the game due to a series of suspensions, injury and illness.

Kick off will be at 3pm.
