Boston United eager for revenge against the in-form Trawlerboys, says skipper Garner

Boston United are desperate to claim swift revenge against Lowestoft Town today, says captain Scott Garner.

The Pilgrims host the Trawlerboys at the Jakemans Stadium (KO 3pm), just one week after their 3-0 defeat on the east coast.

On that occasion a sub-par United went down to finishes from Michael Spillane and Jake Reed, plus a Mark Jones own goal.

However, skipper Garner says the Pilgrims want to make amends for their wounded pride and - spurred on by Monday’s 1-0 derby win over Gainsborough Trinity - are fired up.

“We really want to get after them and have a good result,” he said.

“It was poor from us on Saturday. We need a really good win.

“I wouldn’t expect to see that performance again from us.”

United have only faced Lowestoft in Lincolnshire once, a 5-3 success last Boxing Day - a contrast to their two defeats and one draw at Crown Meadow.

And although the Pilgrims would love a repeat of that scoreline, they will be aware that Town have hit some recent good form.

Lowestoft have scored eight times in their past two National League North fixtures, following up their victory over Boston with a 5-3 success at Corby Town.

In total, they have won five of their past six matches in all competitions, the only blip being a narrow 1-0 defeat at AFC Telford.

That defeat to the Bucks is their only loss in nine matches.
