Dennis Greene says his early pacesetters will meet their sternest tests of the season to date over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Boston United currently sit second in the Vanarama North following three straight wins at the expense of Barrow, Brackley Town and Cowlyn Bay.

But on Saturday they are set to host last season’s runners-up North Ferriby United.

This will be followed up by Monday’s visit to Tamworth, who were relegated from the Conference Premier.

“It’ll be a good test of our squad as Ferriby will no doubt be in the top five,” said Greene, who sees this week’s matches as a chance for his squad to prove they mean business this campaign.

“How we do will be an indication of where we are and it’ll show how the squad’s shaping up.

“Last year we only won five games away from home, this year we’ve won two already.

“If we can stick to that and keep our home form going then we should have a really decent season.”

Boston beat Ferriby 2-0 in the penultimate game of last season, knocking them off top spot. But they were comfortably beaten 3-0 north of the Humber at the start of the previous campaign.

United also faced Tamworth last season, losing 2-0 at the Lamb Ground in the FA Trophy.

Both matches kick off at 3pm.
