Boston United boss Adam Murray has admitted there could be some ‘bite’ in tomorrow’s FA Cup clash against AFC Mansfield, but is only concentrating on making it through to the next round.
Murray played over 100 times for Mansfield Town, and managed the club from 2014-16, so acknowledges his return to Nottinghamshire could cause a stir after AFC were formed by three ex-Stags directors following a series of disputes.
However, the Pilgrims isn’t fazed, and is only concentrating on a place in the fourth qualifying round as his side prepare for tomorrow’s match against their Northern Counties East League Premier opponents.
“I haven’t dreamed of that, to be honest,” he said when asked about a return to Mansfield by the Boston Standard.
“I’ve had my 10 years there. It’s just another game for us.
“There’s obviously a lot of connections there and ex-Mansfield players here so there’ll be a bit of bite.
“But we want a right crack at this. We want to compete in everything this season.”
