Boston United seem unlikely to send recovering striker Marc Newsham out on loan.

The club toyed with the idea to help the forward regain match fitness following a long-standing knee problem.

However, with under 21s matches planned against the English Fire Brigade (December 3) and Grimsby Town (December 9), boss Dennis Greene is looking to use those fixtures to give Newsham minutes.

United are in the process of extending the loan spell of Sunderland goalkeeper Joel Dixon.
