Craig Elliott believes that Boston United receiving a bye in the Lincolnshire Senior Cup will be a blessing in disguise.

The Pilgrims were due to travel to Stamford tomorrow night following their 3-2 victory over Lincoln United.

However, Boston will progress to the semi-finals due to an unnamed ‘rule breach’ made by the Daniels, who progressed by beating Cleethorpes Town.

“No disrespect to Stamford, but I wanted as full week’s training,” said Elliott, who can now concentrate on his players’ fitness following a win over Lincoln City in scorching temperatures.

“I knew (the Lincoln game) would be physically demanding and the weather didn’t help.

“I want to be on the training ground this week, ready for Norwich on Saturday.”
