The Coasters return to Mill Farm tomorrow as they take on Boston United – 3 pm kick-off.

The Pilgrims make the 175-mile trip to the Fylde Coast following a 14-day isolation period, after a member of their team tested positive for Covid-19 a fortnight ago. This meant that The Coasters had to postpone the original fixture scheduled for November 14 and rearrange for tomorrow afternoon.

Meanwhile, AFC Fylde approach this game on the back of a 1-1 draw at Leamington on Tuesday night; a night that Nick Chadwick says the team have analysed and learned from.

Speaking to the, the assistant said: “ We have looked back at the Leamington game on Tuesday, and at some footage of Boston, as we always do, to ensure that we’ve left no stone unturned in our preparation. 

“I’m really pleased with the work that we’ve done on the training ground since Tuesday, and it’s positive to see that there’s a buoyant mood among the lads.”

Nick, who is currently standing in for Jim Bentley as he prepares for his heart surgery, is expecting a tough game on Saturday against a side who have boosted their squad with some impressive signings.

He added: “We’ve been away for a couple of weeks, so it will be nice to get back to Mill Farm.

“There’s no denying that Boston are a dangerous side, who have a really good blend of youth and experience within their squad. Before the season started, they were tipped to challenge for promotion, and rightly so with the players that they have at their disposal.

“They come into the game on the back of a 14-day isolation period, so we are expecting them to be well-rested and itching to get back onto the football pitch.

“In saying that, we’re always confident with the players that we’ve got. We feel as though we‘ve been playing some excellent football, which has been improving from game to game.

“It’s important that we now convert these good performances into results.
