Dan Barrett is calling on his Boston Town side to blow away the Christmas cobwebs and pick up three points at Sleaford Town tonight.

The Poachers make the short trip to face their UCL Premier rivals this evening (KO 7.45pm), the side’s first contest since their defeat to AFC Kempston Rovers on December 20.

And after a lengthy break, boss Barrett believes there is no excuse for his side not to put in a top performance.

He said: “We haven’t played since beforfe Christmas and that may work in our favour as the lads have rested up.

“In the same breath, we need to get rid of the Christmas cobwebs ASAP.

“Sleaford is not an easy place to go, especially on a cold Tuesday night in January.”

Boston came from behind to beat Sleaford 2-1 in November courtesy of goals from Nick Jackson and Michael Wood.
