Sleaford Town have made ‘significant improvements’ in the first half of the season – according to team boss Kris Jones.

He was speaking ahead of the club’s Boxing Day clash with Boston Town, and said he was happy with the team’s overall performance this year.

He said: “The Lincoln lads we’ve brought in have brought quality to the side. The Spalding manager (Pat Rayment), looking down from the from the top of the league, said our brand of football that we play has been the best in the league.

“Attendance has been at the highest we have had in a while. We know we’re going to be a big football side.”

He said was proud of all his players, including Ben and Sam Greenwood, Scott Coupland and Ben Garrick.

On Boxing Day, the team face Boston Town at Tattershall Road, in a local derby, which kicks off at 3pm.

It’s a match Jones said the team are looking forward to.

He said: “Nathan Collins has gone into Boston and done a terrific job.

“Their results have really picked up and Nathan’s done a terrific job of turning them around.

“We won’t approach this match any differently to other fixtures, we’re confident of the result, but both managers will be looking at the game thinking its winnable.

However, striker Liam Tunstall won’t be making an appearance for either team on Thursday, as part of a deal when he transferred back to his old club.

On Saturday, Town host Wellingborough.

○ This Saturday’s game against S&L Corby was postponed.
