Boston Town boss Nathan Collins expects his players will find AFC Rushden & Diamonds intent on revenge when the two sides meet on Saturday.

The in-form Diamonds have won 12 of their past 13 contests, their only defeat being a 2-1 loss at Tattershall Road on December 21.

Collins believes second-placed Rushden will be intent on revenge when Town travel to the Dog and Duck on Saturday (KO 3pm).

However, he is telling his Poachers to concentrate on their own game.

“They didn’t seem happy when we beat them,” Collins told The Standard. “We’re looking forward to putting our stamp on the game and playing our football.

“It doesn’t matter to me whether we’re playing the bottom of the table or one of the so-called big teams.”
