Boston United are on the hunt for their first points of the season - but their injury list is not getting any shorter.

Kalern Thomas, Herve Pepe-Ngoma and Jay Rollins will all miss tonight’s clash against Tamworth after picking up knocks in Saturday’s 4-1 drubbing at Darlington.

They will join Nat Brown and Shane Clarke in the treatment room.

But the good news for the Pilgrims is that Marcus Marshall and Ollie Price are both over injuries and return to the starting XI.

In total, Dennis Greene has made four changes to the team which lost on Saturday.

Price, Marshall, Courtney Wildin and Lewis Hilliard will start with Pepe-Ngoma, Thomas and Rollins not involved and Callum Chippendale dropping down to the bench.

Gregg Smith will make his home debut after his two-game suspension was served.

The Pilgrims go into tonight’s clash rock bottom of the National League North, having lost to Stalybridge, Harrogate and Darlington.

The Lambs, who haven’t beaten Boston in a league match in 18 years, sit join top of the table on seven points, alongside Darlington 1883 and Halifax.

Kick off at the Jakemans Stadium will be at 7.45pm.
