Boston Town are on a revenge mission.

On Saturday, the Poachers travel to face UCL Premier rivals Harborough Town, looking to put two recent defeats behind them.

The weekend’s rivals are the only side to have beaten Town in their past nine matches, when they left Tattershall Road with a 4-0 drubbing last month.

On that occasion, joint-boss Ian Dunn accused too many of his players of expecting an easy ride against the division’s second-bottom team.

Prior to that meeting, Harborough knocked Boston out of the UCL Knockout Cup with a comfortable 2-0 victory.

The Poachers have had some success against their opposition, winning 2-0 at Bowden Park in the FA Vase back in September.

Since their home defeat, Boston have beaten both Yaxley and Peterborough Northern Star.

Now fellow manager Matt Hocking is hoping for a third staright success.

He told The Standard: “We beat them early on in the season, but since then they’ve beaten us twice.

“I think it’s fair to say we certainly owe them one.

“But the main thing is we keep up our good form.”
