JORDAN BURROW insists York City are keeping grounded ahead of tonight's home clash with Boston United.

The Minstermen could go eight points clear at the top of the National League North with a win, though the striker says it is early days yet.

That said, Burrow is still keen to notch a personal milestone against Boston, with whom he had two one-month loan spells in 2011 - but against whom he has not yet scored.

Burrow is also pleased to see the return of Dan Maguire, who scored the winning goal against Chester at the weekend to give City their sixth win in seven.

"It's been a good run," Burrow said.

"I think it's important to keep our feet on the ground. I know it's a cliche but it's true.

"We've just got to keep taking it the next game at a time.

"Every game is massive, irrespective of who we're playing.

"It's all about our mentality and what we do and that's the way we're looking at it.

"We're not looking any further than Tuesday and Boston, which is another big game at home.

"Hopefully we can keep our form going and continue where we left off on Saturday.

"It's like having a new signing having Nipper back," he added.

"He hadn't played since the first game. We can all see his quality and since he's been back he's looked really lively and sharp. He complements me and Kemps well.

"The three of us have played the last two games, we've looked quite lively and we've won them both, which is the main thing.

"Irrespective of who plays, we've got some really good players in the squad and everyone can come in and do a job.

"That's one of the reasons we've been on the run we have.

"Everyone's pulling in the same direction and everyone wants to improve."

Asked if the potential eight-point gap at the top of the table is at the back of the players' minds, Burrow admitted: "It's in everyone's thought process because we all look at the league but it's really early days still.

"Nobody's getting carried away.

"It's another game we've got to be right at it."

Boston went undefeated against York last term, earning a 2-0 win at home and coming back from two down at Bootham Crescent to draw 2-2, with Jay Rollins - who has scored three so far this term - netting the equaliser.

York's last outing at home with the floodlights on did not end too badly, triumphing 2-0 against National League outfit Stockport County in the FA Cup.

"Our fans have been brilliant home and away," said Burrow.

"Hopefully they can make a lot of noise and we can give them something to cheer about.

"We owe them really.

"It would be nice to keep this run going.

"Under the lights at Bootham is pretty special. Hopefully we can pick up where we left off.

"We're not getting carried away - we're just looking to the next game. I know it sounds boring but it's the truth.

"There's loads of football to be played and we're all looking forward to it."
