Boston Town boss Ian Dunn has told his Poachers to go out and ‘have a go’ at Harborough Town.

After two defeats to United Counties League Premier Division pace setters Quorn and Spalding United this week, Dunn believes the UCL KO Cup clash is a good chance for his young side to regain some confidence.

“It’s a cup game but we’ll be looking to go and have a go,” the joint boss told The Standard.

“We beat them 2-0 in the FA Vase earlier this season.

“And after the run of games we’ve had, we see this as a chance to get hold of the ball and play some good football.”

The Poachers’ managers will have some juggling to do before Saturday’s clash at Tattershall Road (KO 3pm).

Central defender Michael Wood begins his three-match ban for a red card against Desborough, while striker Josh Ford also sits the game out due to suspension.

Utility player Shane Clancy (pictured) is another who will be unavailable, but midfielder Lori Borbely is up for selection after seeing out his one-game ban for picking up five yellow cards.

Dunn is looking forward to the contest, believing his team can enjoy some success on the trophy trail.

“We see the competition as one we can win,” he added.

“We’ve scored goals against Harborough already this season, and goals give a young side like ours confidence.

“We’re taking this competition seriously. We won’t rest anyone.”
