We turn our attentions to the weekend’s action with our comprehensive preview of Boston United’s National League North visit to The Brewery Field.
Spennymoor Town v Boston United
National League North
Saturday 4th November 2023, 3pm
The Brewery Field
Boston United arrive at The Brewery Field sitting 11th in the National League North table having had a mixed start to the fresh campaign.
Ian Culverhouse’s men were among the leading pack during the first month having won three of their first five games and collecting 12 points from the first available 15 on home soil.
However, The Pilgrims have struggled to replicate their home form when on the road and they come to County Durham looking to bring to an end a run of three successive defeats on the road.
Boston pulled clear of relegation trouble last term to finish 15th and now fans will be hoping they can get themselves back into contention nearer the top of the table during 2023/24.
Moors did the National League North double over Boston United last term, extending The Pilgrims’ winless run against the Club to nine games.
Joe Tait’s wondergoal did the trick in a 3-2 triumph on home turf last December, before Glen Taylor’s 88th-minute winner settled the issue when Moors visited Jakemans Community Stadium in March.
Ben Pollock will miss playing against his former club as the centre-back starts a three-game ban following his red card at Scunthorpe United.
Meanwhile, Lewis Dickman must run the rule over the fitness of fellow defenders Michael Ledger and James Curtis who were both forced off with injury during the win at Darlington.
James Bancroft will be the man in the middle for Saturday’s encounter at The Brewery Field, and he will be assisted by Macauley Gibson and Sam Bayley.
Fans of both sides can buy their ticket in advance online if preferred, while there will also be the function to buy via card or cash directly on the turnstiles prior to kick-off.
Fans who can’t make it along to The Brewery Field on Saturday can keep bang up to date by joining us on Durham OnAir where we’ll be providing full live audio commentary.
Mark Simpson will be on-air from 2.50pm on Saturday to set the scene and then describe the action as it unfolds – and there are numerous ways for you to access the live coverage.
Moors have been installed as big 17/20 favourites for victory at the weekend, with visitors Boston United rated a 13/5 shot for three points and a draw priced up at odds of 13/5.
