Ready for BPA, but can Boston United move up to second in the Skrill North?

Boston United could move up as high as second in the Skrill North standings if they can beat Bradford Park Avenue this evening.

However, their task will not be made easy as they host one of the division’s in-form sides (KO 7.45pm).

And with the Pilgrims also in top form, boss Dennis Greene is promising a match to remember.

He said: “It’ll be a tough game. They’ve not been beaten for five or six games - but we’re on a good run as well.

“If the supporters want to find a place to watch football on Tuesday night then York Street’s going to be the place to be.”

Park Avenue lost their opening two matches of the campaign, being beaten by league newcomers Leamington Town and North Ferriby United.

But since then they have gone seven games unbeaten.

During that spell, 11th-placed Bradford have beaten Guiseley, AFC Telford United and Worcester City.

They have also drawn with Barrow, Stalybridge Celtic Oxford City and Solihull Moors.

United - who are unbeaten in their past five contests - have only lost once to date, also to North Ferriby.

They sit fifth in the table, and victory would see them leapfrog North Ferriby and Solihull in the table to move third.

A winning margin of four goals or more would even see them overtake second-placed Brackley Town.

However, sixth-placed Altrincham sit a solitary point behind them.

And if results go their way - they host Gloucester City tonight - they could push the Pilgrims out of the play-off positions.
