Nathan Collins has warned his Boston Town side that Holbeach United will be ‘fired up’ this evening - following their FA Cup exit.

The Poachers left Carter’s Park with a 4-2 success on Saturday to book their place in the competition’s first qualifying round.

But in a twist of fate, the Tigers will arrive at the DWB Stadium this evening as the two Lincolnshire rivals face one another in UCL Premier action.

“We have to concentrate on trying to pick up some league points now,” Collins said.

“We’ve got some players coming back, but we’ve also got a couple more missing. It’s frustrating, but that’s non-league football.

“They’ll have the bit between their teeth - but you expect that from any derby game.

“Holbeach will be fired up and they won’t want the same to happen again.”

The Tigers currently top the UCL Premier table with four straight wins, while Town are in 10th spot after picking up two wins and a defeat from their three matches.

Goalkeeper Nick Conroy, who was sent off durin g the weekend’s contest, will be eligible to play for Holbeach.

Kick off will be at 7.45pm.
