Boston United won’t be getting starstruck at Salford City this weekend.

The Ammies, promoted this summer, have enjoyed new-found fame since being taken over by billionnaire Valencia owner Peter Lim and former Manchester United players Gary and Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes.

They have also been the subject of BBC documentary The Class of 92: Out Of Their League, which has charted their rise through the divisions.

However, for the Pilgrims Saturday’s clash at Moor Lane is just another chance to pick up three National League North points.

“I’ve been watching bits of the show. It’s good for them, but we’ll just take it as another game,” said winger Marcus Marshall.

“They’re up there and doing well, so if we can get a win then brilliant.”

Salford currently sit seventh in the standings with United 12th, seven points behind.

Defender Joe Maguire will return from suspension while Courtney Wildin and Jason St Juste will both be back from international duty.

But with a number of injuries in the squad, Dennis Greene will once again be likely to make changes.

“We’re five games unbeaten in the league with a really makeshift team,” he said.

“We just want to keep the unbeaten run going as that’d bridge the gap with the teams above us.

“It’s not easy winning any game in the Conference North, but that’s what we’re going to Salford to try to do.”

The match will kick of at 3pm.
