Jason Lee has told Boston United strikers Spencer Weir-Daley and Ben Fairclough to go out and sign off in style.

The Pilgrims travel to face Blue Square Bet North rivals Stalybridge Celtic tonight (KO 7.45pm).

Jason Lee.

Jason Lee.

And it will mark the final game the pair are eligible to play in before their three-match bans begin.

“I’m sure they’ll want to end on a positive note,” said manager Lee.

“They’re available, but they’ve got just this one game left.”

Lee was quick to point out that he expects his forwards to improve on Saturday’s lacklustre performances, which came as Boston lost 2-1 to Worcester.

He also wants them to remind him why they should be contenders for a starting place when their bans are up.

Both will miss a hat-trick of clashes – league matches against Gainsborough Trinity and Guiseley and the FA Trophy tie with Colwyn Bay – after picking up straight reds in the FA Cup loss to Altrincham.

Fairclough was sent off for a reckless lunge and Weir-Daley for an off-the-ball altercation.

Lee is also calling for his side to improve on their two consecutive defeats.

He told The Standard: “It’s up to us to turn things around.

“We must be as positive as we can be.

“If people get on the bus negative then they won’t be travelling with us”

After sticking with the same starting XI for the past two matches, Lee has also suggested he may make changes tonight.

On Saturday, his four forwards shouldered a lot of his frustrations.

He suggested he could have rested Mark Jones, who was suffering from a back injury, but resisted the temptation to drop a man who had scored in four straight games.

Gary Silk is a player also hoping for a place.

The right back has now recovered from an ankle injury.

“There may be a change or two,” Lee added.

“Maybe Gary Silk can come back into the squad and let’s see how Mark Jones recovers.”
