Boston Town are hoping to complete a derby double over Sleaford Town.

The Poachers came from behind to earn a last-gasp 2-1 victory over their Lincolnshire rivals in November.

Nick Jackson (pictured) cancelled out Liam Tunstall’s strike before Michael Wood snatched three points in the 89th minute.

And now the two sides will meet once again in the UCL Premier on Tuesday evening (KO 7.45pm).

Dan Barrett will be taking his side to Eslaforde Park looking to return to winning ways following December 20’s 2-1 reverse at home to AFC Kempston Rovers.

The Poachers currently sit in 14th place in the standings with 24 points.

Sleaford are two places behind and three points adrift.

However, victory for the home side would not see them move above Boston as their -23 goal difference is far worse than the Poachers’ difference of +4.

Boston’s next match at the DWB Stadium will be on January 10, when they host Huntingdon Town.

The Croms are currently in ninth spot in the standings with 33 points.

The Poachers’ scheduled match at Deeping Rangers was postponed on Saturdaymorning.

The Haydon Whitham Stadium had a snow-covered pitch.
