Dennis Greene can’t wait for Boston United to face promotion-chasing Solihull Moors on Saturday.

The West Midlands side sat fourth in the Skrill North standings before last night’s fixtures, and have previously topped the table this season.

But Greene is relishing the chance to face the Moors, particularly with a near full-strength side.

With Rene Steer and Scott Garner available following their suspensions and Liam Marrs back from injury, United will once again have their first-choice back four available.

“I’m looking forward to that,” Greene said.

“We’ll go back to nearly a full strength side next week.

“I’m looking forward to that and we’ll be looking to get a result.”

Solihull have proven a bogey team for Boston in recent seasons.

The Moors have won four and drawn two of their six contests against the Pilgrims over the past three seasons.

Boston have to go back as far as the 2007-08 season for the last time they beat their weekend opponents.

During that campaign Lee Thompson scored twice and Paul Ellender also netted as Boston won 3-1 in Solihull.

The return match at York Street - Boston’s last victory over Moors - was a 2-0 success.

Jon Stevenson and Jon Rowan both scored on that occasion.

Moors have won six and drawn three of their 11 away games to date this season.

Their only defeats have come away at Colwyn Bay - in a weather affected contest - and at fellow promotion chasers Altrincham.

Kick off at York Street on Saturday will be at 3pm.
