Chester will be the second visitors to Boston United’s brand new stadium in their 12th National League North clash of the season.
The Jakeman’s Community Stadium hosted competitive action for the first time last weekend, as Chorley ran out 2-0 winners over the Pilgrims. Craig Elliott’s men will be expected to compete at the top of the table this term, and have won four of their opening eight matches.
Bern and Jonno’s side come into this one following an electric 5-3 win over Hereford in midweek. They have also been boosted by today’s news at Declan Weeks has signed a contract extension to keep him at the club for the remainder of the season. The 25-year-old has already contributed three goals from midfield this term in 11 league games – and was named Man of the Match on Tuesday night.
