Boston Town will face Peterborough Northern Star tonight.

Following Saturday’s postponement at Eynesbury Rovers due to a waterlogged pitch, the Poachers will hit the road for UCL Premier action this evening (KO 7.45pm).

PNS sit 14th in the standings, five places and seven points above Town.

Boston manager Gary Frost admits that Saturday’s blank day was a ‘blessing in disguise’, suggesting that going without a game wasn’t too tough to take.

“I’ll be honest it’s a blessing in disguise,” he said.

“We have a few lads out and this gives them the chance to get back.”

Frost hopes that Jordan Nuttell and Michael Wood - who would have missed this weekend’s contest - will both now be available for action, while Craig Parker may be fit again in time for Saturday’s home clash against Northampton Sileby Rangers (KO 3pm).

“I think the next few games are winnable,” said Frost.

“They’re ones we’re looking to get something from.”
