BOSTON United must cram in yet another home game after being paired with Skelmersdale United in the first round of the FA Trophy.

The Pilgrims will host the Evo-Stik League Division One (North) outfit on Saturday, November 24 after seeing off Colwyn Bay 3-1 in the final qualifying round on Saturday.

It will be United's fifth home match in a row in all competitions and is another favourable cup draw for Jason Lee's side.

But first, Boston face home matches against old foes Guiseley on Saturday and Solihull Moors on Tuesday in Blue Square Bet North.

With his side in fine form after three straight wins, Lee is relishing facing Steve Kittrick's Guiseley, who are once again challenging for promotion.

The Pilgrims boss says he has the utmost respect for the West Yorkshire side.

"They're a good side and they're up there in the table as they always are," said Lee.

"They've got a good squad of players and a good manager. Steve's someone I speak to more than any other at this level.

"It's a tough game, but we're at home and we've performed well against the teams at the top of the league."

    Although Skelmersdale play two levels below United, do not underestimate them. They are riding high, undefeated, with ten League wins from eleven outings. Looks an intriguing tie. Pilgrims supporters should be pleased to be drawn at home, despite the financial demands. Some eye brows were raised last Saturday when the Trophy match at York Street attracted a crowd of only just under 700. However it was still the fourth largest gate of the round. Even Chester's home Trophy gate was dpwn around 40% on their average home League gate. So well done United fans for turning out last weekend and backing your team.
