Boston Town are eager to beat Shepshed Dynamo and hold on to ninth spot in the UCL Premier.

Last night, 10th-placed Dynamo won 1-0 at Stewarts and Lloyds Corby, closing the gap to three points.

With their superior goal difference, Shepshed could overtake the Poachers if they win at Tattershall Road on Saturday.

So boss Ian Dunn wants his Town side to beat their rivals when they arrive at Tattershall Road on Saturday (KO 3pm).

“We’re in ninth place, so obviously one of our aims is to hang on to ninth place and stay there,” he told The Standard.

The Poachers are currently running the rule over striker Jack Smith, who has joined from UCL Premier champions Holbeach United.

Not to be confused with the former Town and current Tigers defender of the same name, Smith is eager to earn a place in the club’s plans for next season.

His work with the Army will restruct his availability for midweek games, but to date Dunn has been pleased with the forward’s output.

Smith was involved in Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at fourth-placed Huntingdon.

Fans will have their chance to vote for their Player of Year at Boston Town’s final two fixtures of the season.

The trophy, plus other honours will be presented at the end of season awards event on Friday, May 3.

Town finish their campaign on Tuesday at home to Wellingborough (KO 7.45pm).
