David Fallah has revealed that a pep talk from manager Dennis Greene has given him the freedom to express himself on the pitch.
The striker joined the club on a non-contract basis after impressing on trial.
And although he is yet to find the net, the tricky frontman has tasted action in six of the Pilgrims’ seven competitive matches so far this campaign.
“It’s a new challenge,” admitted Fallah, who is making the step up to Conference football for the first time.
“I was informed that the Conference North was a lot more physical than it is in London, so I’m adapting to that and the pace of the game, which is different.
“Hopefully, I can start shining a bit more.”
Fallah has made one start and five appearances from the bench so far this term.
But his cameos have brought some eyecatching impact to the side.
And Fallah is thankful to boss Greene for offering him some freedom.
“I try to make things happen,” he added.
“The manager has really encouraged me to not hold back.
“It takes the weight off your shoulders and there’s less pressure if the manager’s giving you a licence to express yourself, take players on and shoot.
“It gives me a lot of confidence.”
On Saturday Boston travel to Bradford Park Avenue (KO 3pm).
The Pilgrims may have won 2-1 at the Horsfall Stadium to win the UniBond Premier play-off final back in 2009-10, but the venue has not been kind to the Pilgrims in league matches.
Since 2008, United have made four visits, drawing three times and losing once.
