Boston Town are waiting on news about striker Alex Beck ahead of tonight’s FA Cup replay.

The Poachers will travel to face Eastern Counties League Premier Division side Walsham Le Willows in the extra-preliminary round following Saturday’s 1-1 draw (KO 7.45pm).

Striker Beck was substituted in the match after suffering a head injury.

Manager Nathan Collins says the attacker remains a doubt, but admits he may be making changes to his starting XI.

Defender Tim Lowe and striker Callum Walker are both available for Town again after missing the weekend’s match.

Lori Borbely is expected to be available again after picking up an injury in the first meeting.

“We’ve got some players available who we think could hurt them,” said manager Collins.

“We could well be seeing a few changes.”

Also in contention for a place will be 19-year-old striker Jack Wightwick.

The former Louth Town attacker - who has previously had trials with Brentford - contacted the club after retgurning to the area from London.

“He comes highly recommended,” said Collins.

“He’s a young player with a lot of potential. He’s just not quite there with his match fitness yet.”

Town return to UCL Premier action on Saturday as they make the journey to Northamptonshire to face Wellingborough Town.

Kick off is at 3pm.
