Preview: Tamworth (A)
Boston travel to Tamworth unbeaten in their last 4 on the road. The Pilgrims visits to Stalybridge, FC United, Gainsborough and Bradford PA have yielded 2 draws and 2 victories (in that order).
United find themselves in 14th place, 10 points from the relegation places and a further 11 points behind Saturday’s hosts Tamworth.
Tamworth are 3 places, and 3 points, outside the playoffs. Their last game was a 6–2 defeat at home to FC Halifax, and have only won 3 of their last 10 in all competitions, beating Curzon, Altricham and Stalybridge.
The reverse fixture unfolded last August, and saw Tamworth lose both centre backs, to injury and a red card, in the first half. Although Grant Roberts missed the Pilgrims’ penalty, goals from Fairhurst, Colley and Hilliard took the points for the Pilgrims.
