Wright, who was released by York City this summer, limped off with a hamstring injury early in the Pilgrims' play-off final defeat to Altrincham in August.

Since then he has been working with United's sports rehabilitator Hayden Clifton as he treads the path to recovery.

He returned to training for the first time on Thursday and now Boston boss Craig Elliott hopes the former Sheffield United youngster can shrug off a miserable year-and-a-half of injuries and secure a deal with the Pilgrims.

"He's been training with us. We've looked after him really well since his injury," said Elliott.

"Hayden, in particular, has spent a lot of time with him.

"We kept in contact. Jake knows what I think of him and hopefully he can get fit.

"We've put a lot of time and effort into him. Over the last 18 months he's not had the best of luck but he's the type of player maybe we're lacking - he can get goals out of nothing."
