LV Bet Big Preview: National League North Promotion Final

By Sam Elliott

There are some massive matches going on this weekend - here's part one of betting partner LV Bet's bumper previews.

Boston United v Altrincham – Saturday 1st August 2020

The National League North promotion final takes place this weekend with Boston United having home advantage. How crucial could that prove to be?

After a goal fest in the play-off semi-final the Pilgrims will be full of confidence as they welcome Altrincham for a place in the National League.

The sides met way back in August 2019 and it was a convincing 5-0 win for Boston that day - and they will be looking to top scorer Jordan Thewlis to add to his 14 goals this season to send them up!

With a good home record of 11 wins out of 16 matches played this season, Boston are favourites for promotion.

Altrincham come into the Promotion Final in fine form winning their last three matches before the League stopped.

Alty then followed this up with two impressive play-off wins at home to Chester and then an even better performance away at York City.

This weekend will be a shootout between Jordan Thewlis of Boston and Altrincham’s Josh Hancock who has 16 goals to his name this season, including a goal in each of the play-offs matches.
