Pinchbeck United set for battle in UCL Premier Division derby date at Boston Town
Player-manager Ian Dunn faces one of his former clubs tonight in search of Pinchbeck United’s first away league win this season.
Victory at the DWB Stadium would lift the Knights level on points with Boston Town.
The Poachers brought in Chris Shipley, Alex Beck, Lee Beeson and Stacy Cartwright during the summer after they helped Pinchbeck to finish fourth.
However, the rivals are currently in the bottom five of the uhlsport United Counties League Premier Division.
Dunn insisted: “I don’t feel that we should be involved in a relegation battle.
“We are not a bad side. We’ve not had a lot of luck so far this season.
“We’ve also come up against good sides like Rugby Town and Shepshed Dynamo in two of our last three league games.
“We’ve come a long way since the home defeats to Wellingborough Town and Harborough Town when we got opened up and looked poor.
“Everyone expected Shepshed to win on Saturday and they duly got three points.
“It’s frustrating but we are not far away. We will take the positives and look for improvements.
“Three points tonight at Boston would be fantastic for moral and confidence.
“Hopefully we can also add two or three players before this game.
“We need a left-back and midfielder plus game-changers on the bench. We are lacking experience at this level and depth in the squad.
“Young lads are learning but we need a bit more. We don’t have the luxury of having substitutes who will come on and make an impact.”
