Boston Cricket Club Firsts host in-form Lindum on Saturday - looking for the upset which would drag them up the table and further away from danger.

The game between these two sides earlier in the season saw Lindum edge home with a two-wicket victory.

But now the Mayflower men are keen to reverse that result and pick up some much-needed points

“It was a very tight game,” said Boston skipper Tom Baxter.

“We scored around 175 and we were below par but the bowlers worked hard that day and made it a more than competitive score.”

Club captain Baxter will still be sidelined as he recovers from his ankle injury.

However, Baxter aside, the team should be at full strength for this weekend’s crunch clash in the town.

Boston have six games left in the 2016 season and will need to find some form ahead of this period of time.

“Lindum (H), Skegness (A), Woodhall (H), Nettleham (A), Deeping (H) and Louth (A), they are not easy fixtures but we are fortunate that we have to play the sides around us,” Baxter added.

“If we can find some form and pick up the same results as we did in the first half of the season, we will be safe.”

Lindum are a very good side that have a team of very good cricketers.

They have plenty of batting talent to draw upon and lots of options with the ball.

It will not be easy and Boston will have to be on top of their game to cause an upset in this game.
