Boston United are determined to become the first team to claim the scalp of Brackley Town this season, says Stefan Galinski.

On Saturday, the Pilgrims travel to St James’ Park to face their Skrill North rivals in the FA Cup third qualifying round (KO 3pm).

And with Brackley yet to be defeated this campaign, Galinski says the Pilgrims are keen to remind the Saints what it feels like to lose.

“It would be very nice to beat them,” the defender told The Standard. “Hopefully, they’re thinking about us just as we’re thinking about them.

“It’s not just about how we prepare, it’s about how other teams prepare for us.

“We’ve kept two clean sheets from two games and they’re renowned for keeping it tight at the back.

“If we can do more of the same and nick a goal from a set piece, that could be just enough. But you never know in football, it could be a five-goal thriller.”

Ex-Derby County trainee Galinski is also keen to progress in the cup as he looks to exorcise some demons from 12 months ago.

He continued: “I’ve got bad memories of the FA Cup. I was on loan at Corby last year and we got knocked out to a Ryman Premier team who were struggling at the bottom.

“It was Hendon and it was at home. It was their first win of the season - that says it all.

“It’s a horrible memory and they’re proper horrible days.

“It was a mucky game where our players didn’t want it as much as them.”

Carl Piergianni, who joined Boston from the Steelmen in the summer, also has bad memories from that contest as he was sent off during that 2-1 defeat for fighting.
