Boston Town v AFC Rushden & Diamonds

AFC Rushden & Diamonds make another trip to the Fens on Saturday as they travel to face Boston Town in their penultimate away game before Christmas. The Poachers form is much improved since the two sides met at the Dog & Duck at the end of the September, and before a narrow defeat by Yaxley at the weekend they had gone six games unbeaten in the league. Brad Harris will be unavailable for this game, subject to confirmation, as he serves his ban for two yellow cards in the FA Vase game.

The facilities at Tattershall Road are described in some detail on the comprehensive Boston Town website, including a map of the stadium layout – here. They have been significantly improved in recent seasons, and the club advise there is plenty of cover at the ground.

Details of admission prices and any parking recommendations will be added here as provided by the host club, but there is a car park at the ground.
