Tom Platt says Boston United aren't in the FA Trophy just to make up the numbers.

The Pilgrims travel to face Southern League South Evesham United at the Jubilee Stadium tonight (KO 7.45pm), with the winners hosting either Curzon Ashton or AFC Fylde in round three on Saturday.

And Platt, who made an appearance off the bench during Saturday's goalless draw with Chester following a month out with a hamstring injury, is no different.

"That's got to be the aim, you enter stuff to win it," he said when asked about his hopes of lifting the Trophy.

"With us not being in the FA Cup, there's an extra incentive. It's the only cup game we'll have, so 100 per cent we want to do well."

Platt is also hoping to feature this evening.

He added: "The hammy's feeling good after those 20 minutes and there's been no reaction."
