Tom Platt has returned to the Boston United squad as the Pilgrims host Chester this afternoon.

The midfield stopper, last season's Players' Player of the Year, has been sidelined with injury for the past four contests but returns to squad this afternoon.

Due to postponements and self isolation periods, Platt's last official match for the side was October 31's 1-0 win at Southport.

He takes his place on the bench as Craig Elliott has made two changes to the side which won 1-0 at Bylth Spartans in midweek.

Scott Duxbury returns to left back at the expense of Josh Askew while Mitch Rose replaces Connor Dimaio in midfield.

UNITED: Fitzimons, Tootle, Duxbury, Garner, Shiels, Thanoj, Green, Burrow, Thewlis, Hawkridge, Rose; Subs: Platt, Rollins, Dimaio, Preston, Leesley.

CHESTER: Gray, Roberts, Morgan, Weeks, Livesey, Grand, Johnston, Glendon, Elliott, Lacey, Bauress; Subs: Roberts, Dudley, Waring, Goodwin, Jackson.
