Ossett Town plan to cause upset at Boston United

OSSETT Town are planning to upset the form book when they travel to high-flying Boston United on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).

Struggling Town occupy the final relegation spot in the UniBond Premier Division and face a Pilgrims side sitting third and gunning for promotion this term.

But Town boss Peter Daniel is hoping his side rise to the occassion when they play in front what will be one of their biggest crowds of the season at the Jakemans Stadium.

Another crunch clash, in front of another big crowd, awaits Town on Wednesday when they travel across the Pennines to FC United of Manchester (kick-off 7.45pm).

"There will be big crowds at Boston and FC United, they're both well supported clubs and it provides us with two big tests," he said.

"It can work in one of two ways for us, the players can either look forward to it and thrive on it or it can go the opposite way.

"I'm confident my lads have what it takes to thrive on it though. We played in front of nearly 500 at Bradford (Park Avenue) and although we lost I thought we put in a good showing and did ourselves a lot of good from the performance."

Town are set to give debuts to new signings James Bennett and David Ricardo, who arrived at Stade France from Darlington and Scarborough Athletic respectively.

Ossett Albion are in UniBond Division 1 North action on Saturday with a tough trip to AFC Fylde (kick-off 3pm).

Eric Gilchrist's men are in the thick of a relegation battle and are desperate for points to pull them away from danger.
