Marc Newsham says he is desperate to get one over old foes Guiseley when the two rivals lock horns at York Street on Saturday.

The Boston United striker says that previous heartbreak against the Lions means they will always be a team he is determined to beat.

“They’re a side I always definitely want to win against,” said the amber and blacks’ leading scorer.

United’s fierce rivalry with Guiseley began in the 2009-10 season.

On the final day of the campaign, the Yorkshire side leapfrogged the Pilgrims to win the UniBond Premier title.

The following campaign, they beat Boston on penalties to book a place in the Blue Square Bet North play-off final.

Last season Guiseley enjoyed another campaign in the top five, with Boston looking to them as the benchmark of consistency they are searching for.

“It’s always a ding-dong battle with them and we’ll go in confident,” added Newsham, who has scored 14 times this campaign, and three against the Lions in previous years.

“We may not be quite as consistent as them yet, but we’ve just won three in a row and we didn’t manage that at all last season.

“You don’t win anything in November.

“We’ll just concentrate on us and Guiseley will do what they do.

“But we’ll have nothing to fear against them.”

Kick off at York Street is 3pm.
