Graham Drury forecasts 'battle of the strikers' ahead of Boston United's trip to Altrincham
Boston United boss Graham Drury believes the "battle of the goalscorers" between Marc Newsham and Damian Reeves could decide tomorrow night's clash at Altrincham.
After three postponements in a row, the Pilgrims are due to return to action with their rearranged clash at Alty in Blue Square Bet North.
The play-off chasing home side boast the hottest striker in the division in Reeves, who has netted 21 times in the league this season.
But United ace Marc Newsham is not far behind on 14 league goals and Drury believes the pair will be the key men at Moss Lane.

"Altrincham is a tough place to go, there's no doubt about it," said the Pilgrims boss.
"They've got the top scorer in the league, but the pleasing thing is that we've got one, in Marc Newsham, sniffing after him. It will certainly be the battle of the goalscorers."
But Drury insists Reeves won't be the only threat posed by Lee Sinnott's side.
"Lee (Sinnott) has his teams well organised and Duncan Watmore is a decent player as well," added the former Stamford boss, who has no injury worries ahead of the game.
