Today can be the day Boston United start putting things right, manager Graham Drury believes.

The Pilgrims host Blue Square Bet North rivals Colwyn Bay at York Street (KO 3pm), after a poor run of results.

United have won just one of Drury’s first five games at the helm, and they have picked up one point from the past three fixtures.

However, the new boss believes a corner can be turned.

“Colwyn Bay has to be the first building block,” said the man who’s a brickie by day.

“It has to be the platform we build on.

“We’ve got to get three points. We’ve got to get it right.”

The struggling Seagulls sit in 19th spot, just four points out of the drop zone.

United have already beaten their opponents 2-0 in Wales and knocked them out of the FA Trophy with a 3-1 success.

Now Boston want their hat-trick of victories, and Drury reckons his team will be smarting from their recent run.

“We won’t always get perfection,” he said.

“But they’ve got to put it right.”
