Boston Town boss Nathan Collins has told his side to go out and cause AFC Rushden and Diamonds a ‘few problems’.

The in-form Phoenix club arrive at Tattershall Road in high spirits ahead of today’s clash (KO 3pm).

Their last contest saw them become the first team to beat table toppers Spalding United in the UCL Premier this campaign, their 2-1 victory ending the Tulips’ 100 per cent start to the season, which lasted for 17 matches

And that saw the Diamonds stretch their winning streak to 10 matches, eight in the league and two in the FA Vase.

However, the Poachers have also hit a purple patch.

Town are currently four games without defeat, and have won their last three home matches, something which has seen them pull out of the bottom two.

Collins said: “I would have thought Rushden will come here full of confidence.

“They’ll probably arrive thinking it’s a nice chance for them to pick up three points, but I know we’re good enough to cause them a few problems.

“We’ve got lads here who can play - who have proven they can play at higher levels.”

Town are also gearing up for one of their largest league crowds for years this weekend.

Diamonds have been attracting home crowds of around 500 this season - larger than many Skrill North sides.

They have also been taking large numbers of supporters to many of their away games, the attendance for their game at Spalding last Saturday was 411.
