Boston Hockey Club’s Men are hoping they can be top of the tree this Christmas.

They currently sit second in the Eastern Hockey League Division 6NW.

But victory at league leaders Horncastle Seconds today would see them overtake their rivals ahead of the festive break.

Boston will be keen to gain some revenge in this winner-takes-all contest.

Horncastle beat Boston 1-0 in the first match of the campaign.

But since then, Boston have been unbeaten, winning seven and drawing one of their matches, scoring 34 times.

Push back at Horncastle is at 2pm.

On Saturday, Boston Ladies hosts Woodhall Spa Firsts (noon).
