Gainsborough manager Steve Housham believes his side can upset the odds and get a result in the Lincolnshire Derby.

The Blues travel to Boston United on Saturday looking for revenge for their last league visit to York Street.

Housham admits last year’s fixture, where Trinity were on the end of a 6-0 hiding, may play a part, mentally.

He said: “Last year’s horrendous display will be at the back of our minds but I will make sure it will not happen again.”

“They will think that we are pushovers because we are down there and they will think it is a great chance for them to push on towards the play offs.”

“It’s a great chance to edge us nearer to safety and put a big dent in their season.”

“We will do our best to put in a performance as it is a fans’ day as well.”

“We go in on the back of a win against Leamington and we will make sure that we are ready for them.”

Boston come in to the game in a rich vein of form, which has seen them score five times in five of their last six home games.

Housham added: “They are scoring for fun at the minute, five goals per game, so it is going to be a very tough but the form book goes out the window for these matches.”
