Deeping Rangers manager mindful of 'direct' threat away at Boston Town
Deeping Rangers can seal their third uhlsport United Counties League Premier Division derby win in a row at Boston Town tonight (Tuesday - kick off 7.45pm).
The Clarets followed up their 4-2 success away to Pinchbeck United at the end of January with a 2-0 victory over former league leaders Holbeach United on Saturday.
A goal in each half by Dan Garrick sealed the win for Michael Goode’s side, who travel to Boston’s DWB Stadium knowing that a win will put them level with the Tigers.
Deeping drew 2-2 with the Poachers when the teams last met two weeks ago, Jordan Macleod netting twice for the Clarets after returning from a three-month spell at BetVictor Southern Premier Central side AFC Rushden & Diamonds.
Goode said: "When Jordan Macleod rings you and says: 'It's been hard at Rushden and I liked it at Deeping where I really, really enjoyed my football the first time round', you'd snatch his hand off to have him back.
"Jordan didn't have the best of games against Holbeach on Saturday, but he's a threat and you have to mark him man-for-man all of the time.
"He'll get chances but Jordan's also a great foil for Tom Garrick, a good goalscorer on the other side of the pitch as well.
"Boston will be a tough game, although we were excellent against them in the first half a couple of weeks ago.
"As with Holbeach, Boston have style that’s very direct which we'll have to deal with.
"If we don’t deal with it, we’re in trouble.
"But if we do deal with it and can bring to them our own bit of quality as well, then we’ve got a chance."
