LEADING scorer Spencer Weir-Daley is hoping to end his goal drought as Boston United face Gloucester City tomorrow (KO 3pm).

Weir-Daley has failed to score in the club’s previous seven matches.

And, after putting a hip injury behind him, the marksman – who has bagged 12 goals this term – wants to see his name on the scoresheet more regularly.

And he even admitted that he’s not happy with a win, unless he finds the net as well.

Weir-Daley told The Standard: “It sounds selfish, but it hurts when you don’t score.

“Winning is the main thing for the team, but as a striker it plays on your mind if you don’t score goals.

“I know I can’t start changing my game drastically, I’ve just got to wait for a chance to come as I know I can convert it.

“But you always want to score.”

Weir-Daley was on target as United earned a 1-0 victory at Gloucester in the league in January.

But the Tigers then got some revenge as they dumped the Pilgrims out of the FA Trophy seven days later.

Despite team-mate Ryan Semple suggesting Boston ‘owe them one’ following the cup defeat, Weir-Daley says United have to take each game as it comes, and never underestimate an opponent at the business end of the season.

“It doesn’t matter where teams are in the table right now,” he added.

“Either way it’s tough, whether they’re pushing for promotion or fighting to stay in the league, everyone seems to have a reason to play well.

“Every game is massive from now until the end of the season.”
