BOSTON United have come through their warm-up tests well and are almost ready for the season’s curtain-raiser, says boss Jason Lee.

After tests against Hull City, Mansfield Town, Peterborough United and Chelmsford City XIs, the boss believes his squad have been pushed hard.

He said: “I have been pleased with how things have progressed in the matches so far.

“We did well early on with plenty of goals and some good victories.

“But the past couple of games have - with due respect to the likes of Sleaford and Spalding - seen us tested more fully by sides who are smarter and who have posed us a few questions.

“Some people might have got carried away with the initial results, but I have always known our learning curve would get steeper - which it certainly has.”

The first match of the Blue Square Bet North campaign is at Droylsden on Saturday.

But which formation will Lee favour?

He has hinted at maybe shoreing things up with the 4-3-3 style he favoured last season.

He added: “Against Hull and Mansfield, we have encountered a few problems but have then changed a few things from a 4-4-2 to 4-3-3 formation and turned in some good displays that have left me reasonably happy.”
