Michael Hollingsworth is challenging his Boston United teammates to ‘get in the faces’ of Vanarama North leaders AFC Fylde.

The Pilgrims are looking to bounce back from the weekend’s 2-1 defeat to Solihull Moors and kick-start their play-off charge on Saturday.

But to do so they’ll have to get one over the table-topping Coasters, who are unbeaten in their past 14 matches in all competitions, winning 12 of those contests.

However, midfielder Hollingsworth reckons he knows just the way to unsettle Fylde.

“We’ll get together, get stuck into them, and see what happens,” he told The Standard.

“It’s certainly a game we can look forward to. We’ve got nothing to lose playing the top of the table.”

Hollingsworth is enjoying his return to the Pilgrims’ starting line-up and the tough tackling midfield partnership he enjoys with Conor Marshall, something he hopes to continue on Saturday (KO 3pm).

“I want to get into people’s faces, make it hard for them to play and, if possible, help us play as well and get the ball moving,” he added.

“We’ll work hard in training and crack on with the things we need to work on, all being well we can get a result.”

Pilgrims boss Dennis Greene backed his player’s views, adding: “I think we’re improving, so they’ll certainly get a game down here.”
