Town aiming for first league success

Boston Town boss Ian Dunn has faith that his Poachers will be a force to be reckoned with in the UCL Premier.

Despite putting together a promising squad this summer, Town are yet to pick up a point in the league.

But the player-manager believes he has seen enough to convince him there’s plenty of reasons to be optimistic at Tattershall Road.

“We have to make sure we come out on top in games when we’re the better side,” he admitted.

“We’re not doing that at the moment.

“Some of the football the boys are playing right now is the best football I’ve seen while I’ve been here.

“You can’t say we’re playing badly.”

Town now have two chances to pick up their first league victory this week.

On Saturday, they travel to face basement side Northampton Sileby Rangers.

Rangers are yet to pick up a point in the league, having lost their opening five matches of the campaign, having conceded 18 times and scored just three goals.

Kick off at Fernie Fields will be 3pm.

This will be followed up by Tuesday’s Wisbech Town.

The highly-fancied Fenmen have had an indifferent start to their campaign, so much so that manager Steve Appleby resigned last week.

After beginning the season with victories over Wellingborough and Peterborough Northern Star, they were beaten by Huntingdon and Deeping, before drawing with Kempston.

Kick off at the Fenland Stadium will be 7.45pm.

United have drawn with Kempston and Yaxley, but have suffered defeats to Cogenhoe and Spalding.
