Boston Town must play their own game - says boss Collins

Boston Town should worry about their own game - and not who’s up next on the fixture list.

That is the opinion of manager Nathan Collins.

Town’s next four matches are against three of the UCL Premier’s top sides.

But Collins believes that if his charges concentrate on doing their own jobs then they should have nothing to fear.

“I’m just trying to get across to the lads that it really doesn’t matter who we are playing, as long as we set ourselves up right and play our game,” Collins told The Standard.

“If the lads do that then it doesn’t matter if we are playing the bottom or top teams, even the teams who are spending stupid amounts of money

“It doesn’t matter who we are playing. If a team beats us then we know they will have to work hard to beat us.”

First up for the Poachers is Saturday’s clash at second-placed AFC Rushden & Diamonds (KO 3pm).

This will be followed by home and away matches against fifth-placed Huntingdon Town, taking place over two back-to-back Saturdays.

In between those matches will be January 21’s UCL Knockout Cup second round clash at Spalding United.

The Tulips are currently 13 points clear at the top, and have beaten Boston three times already this season - scoring 18 times and not conceding.

Collins added: “People will look at the league table and expect us to lose all of those matches.

“But I don’t expect us to lose all those matches, I’ve got a lot of confidence in the side.”
