Boston United expect to welcome Max Wright and Jonathan Wafula back from injury as they face Darlington today.

Wright missed last weekend’s 4-0 victory over Blyth Spartans due to an infection, while Wafula was substituted in the first half with an ankle injury.

“He’s had problems with an infection, he’s been on anti-biotics, fingers crossed he’ll be back in the squad for next week,” manager Craig Elliott said of Grimsby Town loanee Wright.

“Jono’s just gone over on his anke. Hopefully it’s not a bad one.”

Victory would see the fourth-placed Pilgrims make it three wins from four National League North games as they look to rediscover their early season form.

Darlington, meanwhile, ended a three-game winless run at nine-man FC United last weekend.

They sit 16th in the table, eight points behind Boston.

The match kicks off at 3pm.
