Zak Mills says Boston United have a hat-trick of reasons to knock Gainsborough Trinity out of the FA Cup.

Mills and fellow Pilgrims centre back Carl Piergianni both watched from the stands as Nicholas Bignall’s strike saw the Blues earn the points at the Northolme in the National League North contest last month - Trinity’s first home win against Boston in 19 seasons.

Now United return to North Lincolnshire this Saturday (KO 3pm) looking for instant revenge, the chance to put the weekend’s defeat to Fylde behind them and pick up the £4,500 prize money which comes from winning in the second qualifying round.

“We’ve got three reasons why we want to win that,” Mills said.

“We need money for the club, to put this behind us and get revenge for what happened two or three weeks ago.

“Both me and Pidge sat in the stands next to each other pulling our hair out that day.

“Hopefully, I can aid the team this week.”

Mills is also desperate to create some happy memories of the competition for himself.

He added: “At Histon we didn’t have too many good times, we were always on the other side of the underdog.

“I’d like a really good run with this club.”

Mills continued: “It’s the stuff dreams are made of when you’re in the Conference North.

“We’ve got a real good squad. Look at our teamsheet.

“If we can iron a few things out we’ll turn things around.”
