Greene says Boston United’s away form is ‘mind boggling’

Dennis Greene is demanding that his Boston United players begin replicating their immense home form on the road.

Saturday’s 5-2 thrashing of Harrogate Town saw the Pilgrims take their scoring tally to 26 goals in their past six games at the Jakemans Stadium – scoring a staggering five times in five of those matches.

But away from those home comforts it’s a different matter, with United earning just one win and four draws in their past 10 fixtures.

“I just don’t know why we can’t do it away from home, because we don’t set up any different,” said Greene, who is reluctant to change his philosophy.

“We don’t play any different and I don’t ask them to play any different.

“It’s mind boggling how we can’t do this away from home, they get the same instructions.

“Maybe I’m getting it wrong and I’ve got to give them different instructions – but I want to win every game.”

United are now looking to improve their away form as they travel to face Hednesford Town this Saturday (KO 3pm) and Gloucester City seven days later.

Hednesford – who have won five and drawn one of their past six home contests – beat Boston 2-0 at the Jakemans Stadium this season, and remain one of the Pilgrims’ main promotion rivals.

Last season’s visit to Keys Park saw the Pitmen win 4-2 as Greene’s injury and illness-ravaged squad was bolstered by four players drafted in as favours the previous day - Dan Pritchard, Pa Sulay Njie, Brad Gascoigne and Liam Agnew all stepping in.
