Jack Broadhead has returned to the Boston United starting line-up for tonight’s contest at Tamworth.

He is one of two changes to the side which beat Alfreton 3-1 a week ago, with Karl Hawley also making the starting line-up at the expense of Tyrell Waite and Gregg Smith, who begins a three-match suspension.

Broadhead left the field early on the opening day of the season after being knocked out with a knee to the head after his arrival from the bench.

His inclusion in the line-up signals his first National League North start since the final game of last season, a 4-2 defeat at Curzon Ashton.

Kick off will be at 7.45pm.

TAMWORTH: Rowley, Burns, Morley, Deeney, Jones, Upton, Ezewele, Verma, Styche, Taylor, Knights.

SUBS: Davies, Curley, Lane, Reid, Fox.

BUFC: Willis, Clifton, Beatson, Keane, Batchelor, Cowgill, Broadhead, Chapman, Hawley, Hemmings, Warren.

SUBS: Tshimanga, Hare, Waite, Vince, McGuire.

REF: Amy Fearn.
