MATT Hocking has told his Boston Town side to go out and be ruthless at Blackstones tonight.

The Poachers travel south to face their Stamford-based rivals in United Counties League Premier Division action tonight (KO 7.45pm).

The free-scoring Poachers have been good value for money lately, netting 17 times in their past six matches.

And after securing a 3-0 success at bottom-of-the-table Wellingborough at the weekend, Hocking wants his side to show no mercy against struggling Blackstones.

“Our bunch of lads have to pull together and work hard for each other.

“We can be a handful going forward,” he said.

“We always look dangerous.

“We’re going to take the game to them.”

The clash also sees Poachers forward Simon Mowbray return to his former club.

Hocking also backed the forward to do the business once again and add to the two goals he has netted so far this campaign.

The Town boss said: “We know he has plenty of quality.

“He will work hard for the team and he will score plenty of goals for us, I’m sure.

“He’s a player you’d rather have on your side than against you.”

Blackstones have lost four of their five league matches so far.

They sit 18th in the table having scored six times.

But they have shipped 13 goals already.

However, Hocking is taking nothing for granted.

“I watched them play Holbeach last week,” he told The Standard.

“They lost (2-1) but they still looked good.

“We cannot underestimate any side because there are still some positives coming from that team.”
