AFTER they spent a season in the same York City team, Pete Jameson knows he and his defence must keep an eye on striker Jordan Burrow tonight.

Burrow, who crossed paths with Jameson during the Minstermen's impressive 2019/20 campaign, could well be leading the line for Boston United tonight (7.45pm) at the Jakemans Community Stadium when the two sides meet in National League North.

After Saturday's 1-0 win over Chester, York have risen to seventh in the division - one place above the Pilgrims, who have scored two fewer goals.

The 29-year-old Burrow has contributed only one of those for Boston this season, but City will know his influence at the front is measured in more than goals.

"Jordan's a really good lad and a good player," commented Jameson.

"He works his socks off and gives 100 per cent.

"Obviously I know what he's capable of doing because I played with him for the season here.

"He will be a threat tomorrow so we've got to make sure we look after him."

Leading the way in the Boston goalscoring charts is Danny Elliott, who has bagged five of the Pilgrims' 13 strikes this term.

The majority of those have come at home in Lincolnshire. Boston go into tonight's game having lost just one of four league games at home this season, a 2-1 opening-day defeat to Spennymoor Town.

Since then, the Pilgrims have shown their mettle by rebuffing their visitors in two 2-1 victories and one 4-1 win.

"You just want to start off with clean sheets," said Jameson on how he is looking at Boston's attacking threat.

"They've got Jordan and Danny Elliott, who's also a good forward, so they've got a really strong forward line.

"Jake Wright was here as well.

"They've obviously got good threat up there so it's down to me and the defence to make sure we keep it tight."

Jameson has been playing behind a mix-and-match defence all season, since left-back Scott Barrow's Achilles injury in pre-season. Players have dropped in and out of the back line, which has comprised a good few midfielders in recent games.

The highly-regarded 28-year-old shot-stopper Jameson has been instrumental for York during this turbulent period, and his solidity between the sticks earned him the official man-of-the-match award at the weekend.

Jameson is "over the moon" to have taken the accolade for what was his first league clean sheet this season.

"Most importantly," he added. "We got the three points but to get a clean sheet and man of the match - it was a good Saturday."

For Chester, manager Steve Watson was able to name two recognised defenders in the back line, with central midfielders Akil Wright and Paddy McLaughlin dropping back.

In circumstances such as these, it is the role of Jameson and senior defenders - on Saturday, club vice-captain Matty Brown - to marshal the defensive newcomers.

"I think you'd look at myself and Browny at the back as the leaders who help the lads," Jameson explained.

"Say, for example, Paddy - he's done brilliantly filling in at left-back.

"He's not a natural left-back so there will be times when he's drifting into another position and it's just down to me and Browny to check that."
