BOSTON Town and King’s Lynn will go head-to-head yet again tonight, as their United Counties League Premier Division clash is set to be replayed.

The league-leading Linnets earned a 1-0 victory at Tattershall Road on October 25, thanks to a Jack Defty goal.

But it was later discovered Lynn fielded Rob Hughes, who was ineligible to play on that night due to suspension.

However, the UCL decided the match should be replayed, rather than the points being awarded to Town.

Poachers chairman Mick Vines said he was ‘mystified’ by the decision.

However, he welcomes the opportunity for his rejuvenated Boston side to attempt to rock the apple cart.

He said: “I think we’re in a good position now and we’ll be set for a good season next season.

“This is a chance to see how we can compare to teams at the top.” Both league clashes between the two sides have been fiery affairs this campaign.

Lynn also won the league clash in Norfolk, Stephen Spriggs and Robbie Harris on target.
