BOSTON Town are looking to do the double over Newport Pagnell.

The Poachers kicked off their United Counties League Premier Division with a 3-0 victory at Willen Road in August.

On that day, Danny Matson netted twice while Shane Clancy was also on target as the Poachers shot down the Swans.

Since then, things have changed dramatically at Tattershall Road, with Phil Jones replacing Martyn Lakin as boos, as well as the squad undergoing a large rebuilding process.

“I’m really happy with the job Phil’s doing,” said chairman Mick Vines.

“He’s brought in new players, we’re playing good football and we’re in a good position for next season.”

Jones, who was promoted from running the reserves after Lakin resigned as manager, has guided the Poachers to four wins in five matches since becoming boss.

The club’s one defeat came against promotion-chasing Long Buckby.

Newport Pagnell, who were tipped to be in the mix at the top of the table at the start of the campaign, sit in 12th place.

They are a place and five points ahead of the Poachers, but Boston have three games in hand.

On Saturday, Town beat Irchester 2-0, with Lori Borbely and Nick Brown on target.

Kick off at Tattershall Road is 3pm.
