Boston United are set to return to action this evening for the first time in three weeks.

Craig Elliott’s side will host fellow promotion chasers Kidderminster Harriers at the Jakemans Community Stadium, weather permitting.

The Pilgrims haven’t played since January 20’s penalty shootout defeat to Chesterfield in the FA Trophy.

Since then the National League North has been postponed for a fortnight and weekend opponents Curzon Ashton opted not to play due to funding and safety fears.

Harriers sit fifth in the table, on place and two points above Boston, having played two games more.

Russell Penn’s side - which includes ex-Pilgrims Ashley Hemmings and Alex Penny - have not played since January 9 and arrive at the Jakemans winless in five matches, which includes an FA Trophy defeat to Stamford.

Kidderminster’s last victory was a 1-0 win at Gateshead on December 12.

With snow falling in Lincolnshire today the Pilgrims will keep tabs on the playing surface throughout the day.
