FA Trophy draw is tough, says Boston's Canoville

Boston United

Joint boss Lee Canoville feels Boston United face a tough tie at Dartford in the second round of the FA Trophy.

"We'd have liked a home game. But, as you go further, the games get tougher," Canoville told BBC Lincolnshire.

"I'm sure there'll be no pressure on us. We don't know much about them but we'll go there full of confidence."

Boston visit the Blue Square Bet South promotion-chasers on 14 January, having beaten Blue Square Bet North leaders Hyde 2-1 in Saturday's first round tie.

The Pilgrims trailed at half-time at York Street after the prolific Scott Spencer put Hyde ahead five minutes before the break.

But Boston levelled on the hour with a rare goal from veteran defender Kevin Austin, who netted for only the eighth time in his career, before Ben Fairclough grabbed the winner 13 minutes from time.

"We'd have liked the home draw against maybe a big side that everyone was thinking about," admitted Canoville. "But we'll have to get through this round and give ourselves the opportunity for that kind of draw again."
