JASON Lee is not going to hand out any favours in the final two matches of the season.

Boston United face leaders Hyde and second-placed Guiseley before their season comes to a close.

But while some clubs may have half a mind on a holiday, Lee says it is business as usual.

He knows Boston can still have a big say in who will win the Blue Square Bet North title, and who will be forced to compete in the play-offs.

And the Pilgrims manager has plans on victory over both sides.

He said: “As a player I never wanted to give anyone any favours.

“If you were playing a side facing relegation I wanted to send them down, and if I was playing against a side looking for promotion I wanted to put a dent in that.”

Lee says is he is too proud to just go through the motions, especially as it could mean sharing a pitch with a team that has achieved what he set out to this year – promotion.

He doesn’t want to be an unwanted guest at a party, and so his plans to crash begin this Saturday at Hyde (KO 3pm).

The Tigers currently top the table, two points clear of the Lions.

And they have been in solid form at Ewen Fields all season.

To date they have won 14 and drawn five of their 20 home games this campaign.

Their only defeat came on March 24, a 1-0 reverse against Guiseley.

However, the Pilgrims will travel without fear, knowing they have already beaten Gary Lowe’s side this campaign.

That victory came in an FA Trophy clash at the Jakemans Stadium in December.

Kevin Austin’s only goal for the club, plus Ben Fairclough’s first in amber and black saw Boston win 2-1.

However, they previously lost the league clash on the same pitch, beaten comfortably 2-0.

United’s season will come to a close at York Street seven days later when they entertain Guiseley (KO 3pm).
