Boston United’s under 18s will host Mickleover Sports in the FA Youth Cup this evening - and manager Mark Thompson expects the visitors to raise their game at the Jakemans Community Stadium.

The Pilgrims booked their place in the second qualifying round with a 3-1 win at West Bridgford, followed by last Tuesday’s 8-1 thrashing of Dunkirk.

“We need to get back out there and go again,” said Thompson, looking forward to another outing on the first-team pitch.

“I think it’s one of those things, people will raise their games when they come here.

“(Dunkirk) were a little starry eyed when they got here, saying how great it was and facetiming family and friends.

"But it’s good for our boys to get a taste and for their families to be here.

“We’ll approach it as we have done and hopefully get another good result.”

Sam Harris and Elliot Foster netted hat-tricks with Krisztian Gagyi and Logan Tate also on target. Charlie Wilkinson saved a penalty.
