Spencer Weir-Daley is desperate to show former club AFC Telford United exactly what they are missing.

The Pilgrims host the Bucks at the Jakemans Stadium this evening - Boston’s first home match of the Skrill North season.

And Weir-Daley could face his former employers for the first time since leaving New Bucks Head in January 2012.

The former Nottingham Forest forward admits the split was amicable, but he was left frustrated that he couldn’t fulfil his potential, making just two competitive appearances in the space of five months.

“Most of their fans didn’t really get to see me,” said Weir-Daley.

“Playing against them will give me a good chance to show them the reason the manager wanted me there in the first place.

“It would be nice to get a goal.”

Weir-Daley opted to leave Boston for a return to full-time football in the summer of 2011.

But his move didn’t go to plan, and with Telford boasting a large squad he was loaned out to Buxton.

There, Weir-Daley netted four times in three matches before returning to Boston at the turn of the year.

He made an instant impact on his return, scoring during his first match back, the FA Trophy clash at Dartford.

Since his return, the striker has scored 21 times in 60 matches.

And now he is looking to add to that tally.

Weir-Daley added: “It’s the first home game, and against Telford.

“It’s going to be a tough start, but it can be a really exciting start if we can get the right results and positive performances.

“The manager and everyone else knows I want to be involved, I want to be involved regardless.

“But seeing the fixture list, everyone wants to be in that starting XI.”

Kick off tonight is 7.45pm.
