The Pilgrims entertain Guiseley AFC on Saturday, looking to soften the blow of their last two home defeats. Tommy Taylor's side are expected to make amends for earning just 3 points out of 9 at York Street so far this season, but face an uphill struggle in overturning their opponents this weekend.

A number of matches in the UniBond Premier League are in doubt tomorrow with torrential rain across the country waterlogging the pitches. But there is no evidence to suggest that Boston United's game will not proceed. The town has had the best of the nation's weather. If it pours down in the morning, and we mean if it really pours down, check the official website for details.

Rain is expecting during the game but temperatures will stay fairly average. Bring a raincoat but there does not appear to be any need for an extra pair of socks yet!

Admission prices are as always whilst kick-off is 3:00pm. The attendance could possibly dip below 1,000 for the first time this season. It was just over 1052 midweek on what was a miserable night of football, although the club could scrape over the four-figure mark once again as the action returns to a Saturday afternoon. And of course us Bostonians have proved to be very loyal over the past 18 months or so. So keep that reputation and get down to York Street, for all you know we may come out all guns blazing and put on a fantastic show. Away support will be bare once again, as it will be for every home game this season barring January 10th (vs. FC United of Manchester). The Town End will complete its four game trial today - but the trial will most likely be judged as a success and the ground arrangements made permanent.

Right-back Tom Matthews is still injured. Wes Parker may move from central midfield to defence to make room for Steve Melton, who is guaranteed to make his second 'debut' for United tomorrow. Danny Matson may appear for Boston for the first time up front, having overcome a thigh injury.

The Editor's Prediction: A draw. We have home advantage and our players wouldn't dare lose again, surely? They can't! They'll be looking to pitch in an excellent performance and make amends by bagging all three points, although our opponents are sitting pretty towards the top of the league and will be full of confidence. I think they'll match us at our own game (proper football). They have proved they can cut it away, having not lost so far this season either on their own turf or their league rivals'.
