“We need the fans behind us” is the call from Blyth Spartans manager Alun Armstrong ahead of Saturday’s trip to Boston United.

Following Tuesday’s 1-0 home defeat to Alfreton Town, Spartans have managed to collect just one win in their previous five league games. However, despite the slight dip in form, Armstrong’s men still occupy the final playoff spot – holding a four-point advantage over Bradford Park Avenue and Chorley, who sit just outside the top seven.

Armstrong, speaking to BSAFCTV after the midweek defeat, asked supporters to remember “where we are” ahead of the journey to The Jakemans Stadium.

“We got to go away to Boston – which is going to be another tough game. I’d imagine it’ll be very similar to Tuesday and we’ll have to try and break them down,” said the former Middlesbrough striker.

“It’s going to be really tough but I’ll get the lads in on Thursday – try and get their spirits up, and get them playing the confident football we’re used to playing.”
