It’s D-Day for Boston United’s Skrill North play-off hopes.

The Pilgrims head off to Worcester City today looking to defy the odds and force their way into the division’s top five.

Dennis Greene’s side are currently three points behind fifth-placed Guiseley, but with a superior goal difference.

If United can beat Worcester City and Guiseley are beaten at home by Gloucester City then they will pull off the improbable.

But any other result will mean that Boston will have to settle for sixth spot.

However, the Pilgrims believe all the pressure is on the Lions in their scrap against Gloucester’s Tigers.

“All we can do is try to win a football match,” said Boston bodss Dennis Greene.

United hit the road looking to stretch their unbeaten run to 10 matches, while the out-of-form Dragons have won just once in their past seven matches, a 1-0 success against Barrow.

Meanwhile, over in Yorkshire, Guiseley are also in a decent run of form.

Despite Easter Monday’s surprise draw at relegated Workington - which gave United their glimmer of hope - the Lions have lost just once in their past 16 contests.

That was a 3-2 defeat at Hednesford Town, who have already booked their place in the top five.

From that run, Guiseley have won 11 and drawn four times, bulldozing their way from mid-table also-rans to promotion contenders.

But Gloucester will be no pushovers.

They have lost just once in their past five matches, but have they got what it takes to leave Nethermoor with the three points that could do United the ultimate favour?

Worcester City currently groundshare at Kidderminster Harriers’ Aggborough stadium.

Kick off is at 3pm.
