Boston Town head to highflying Eynesbury Rovers on Saturday, looking to pull off an upset and edge further away from the drop zone.

The Poachers - who sit four points above the bottom two - looked to have gained another valuable point at home to fellow strugglers Kirby Muxloe on Saturday.

However, a late goal saw them end the day pointless, when victory could have seen them leapfrog their opponents.

Attention now turns to Rovers, who sit third in the United Counties League Premier Division.

Rovers’ run of eight league games without defeat was ended on Saturday with a surprise 2-1 loss at Northampton ON Chenecks, the same place where Town won 1-0 the previous week.

During that unbeaten run Eynesbury managed to score 36 times, yet still be held to a 1-1 draw by basement side Huntingdon.

“They’re not easy games, going to places like Eynesbury,” Boston boss Gary Frost said.

“But you can’t be scared, you’ve got to give it a go.”

Kick off at the Alfred Hall Memorial Ground will be at 3pm.

Harrowby, who sit second bottom, were without a game at the weekend and now have three games in hand on the Poachers.

Two of Town’s remaining home league games have been moved.

The fixture at home to leaders Peterborough Sports has been brought forward from April 8 to March 25.

And the meeting at the DWB Stadium against Wellingborough has been pushed back to April 1, leaving April 8 as a blank weekend.
