City aim to get back on track at Boston

Worcester Editorial 27th Mar, 2015 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

WORCESTER City will look to put back-to-back defeats firmly behind them when they make the trip to play-off chasers Boston United tomorrow (Saturday).

The Blue and Whites’ four game unbeaten run was soundly ended by a 4-0 home defeat to AFC Fylde before Barrow also walked away 2-0 winners from Aggborough last week.

But City have not lost away from home since the last weekend in January and have scored nine in their last three league away outings, including their last on the road when they beat Midlands’ rivals Solihull Moors 4-1.

Aaron Brown looks set to return to the side after his two game suspension, but Shab Khan is still two games away from making a return from his lengthy six match ban.

Tyler Weir could also be in contention to start his first tie since January 11 after making his return in last weekend’s defeat to Barrow, but the game will come too soon for Danny Jackman, Connor Gater and Nathan Vaughan.

Nick Wright will also be unavailable after the striker opted to join rivals Gloucester City until the end of the season.

The Pilgrims are on a fine run of recent form and head into the clash at The Jakesmans Stadium having won their last four on the spin, including a 2-1 success over rivals Gainsborough Trinity last time out.

Boston, who occupy the fifth and final play-off spot, have also hit the back of the net five times in five of their last seven on home soil.

The pair played out a 1-1 draw back at Aggborough in September when Daniel Nti’s equaliser earned Worcester a share of the spoils.
