Dennis Greene believes that his Boston United squad are more than good enough to finish the season as the Skrill North champions.

Saturday’s 3-2 victory over second-placed Altrincham saw the Pilgrims move up to third in the standings.

And a jubilant Greene believes the sky’s the limit for his United side this season.

He said: “We’re capable of winning this league and, as a safety net, we’ll get in the play-offs.

“We’ve had a little spat this week because I don’t want to settle for sixth, I don’t want to settle for seventh.

“I want to settle for top, and if not, second, third, fourth or fifth.

“I want to instil that into the players, that we’re here to stay and we’re here to win this league.”

The spat Greene mentioned was a midweek fall-out which saw keeper Ashley Timms transfer-listed.

But after discussions with the stopper, Timms played for the Pilgrims on Saturday.

Now Greene is challenging his squad to go out and prove themselves at Brackley Town on Saturday (KO 3pm).

The Saints sit a point and two places below Boston in the Skrill North table, but they knocked United out of the FA Cup with a 2-0 victory at St James’ Park earlier this month.

Greene added: “We want to get them back. We go to win the game, but if we get a point we’ll take that.”
