Saturday 27th January.
Town managed to beat Conference side Boston United 2-1 although
it took two goals in the last few minutes to secure the win. Boston
who featured ex-Town man Paul Raynor had taken the lead in the 26th
minute and it took a Martin Smith goal with about 3 minutes left
and a Craig Armstrong (are you sure?) penalty to save Town’s blushes.
Hopefully we are saving our real firepower for the visit of Nottingham
Forest in a week’s time! A win is a win, but we really should have
done better with what was essentially a first team line up.
The only other point of note was that the team included John Thorington
who has been training with the club after having been out of the
game with guess what… a hamstring injury. He is currently on the
staff at Bayer Leverkusen having started his career at Manchester
United, but do we really want yet another player with weak hamstrings?
Five minutes on the pitch at the McAlpine and he will be knackered
