Dennis Greene is calling on Boston United to spoil Lowestoft Town’s home comforts.

Dayle Southwell’s brace, plus collectors’ items from Greg Tempest, Rene Steer and Scott Garner, saw the Pilgrims beat the Trawler Boys 5-3 on Boxing Day.

And although manager Greene expects Town to play the same attack-minded style of football when the two sides meet in Suffolk on New Year’s Day (KO 3pm), he believes that playing at Crown Meadow will give the hosts a mental boost.

“It’ll probably be pretty similar, but they’ll have a little more belief as they’ve won games at home,” Greene said.

“They had plenty of desire at our place but they just didn’t probably have the quality and they are quite vulnerable defensively.

“They get forward and leave themselves exposed at the back.

“Hopefully, we’ll get chances and we’ve got to take them.”

Lowestoft are yet to win on the road in the Vanarama North this season, having picked up just four points in 11 matches away from home.

But on the east coast they have been beaten just twice, winning seven times and drawing twice.

The Pilgrims, however, are no slouches on the road, having picked up 16 of their 34 points outside of Boston.

United will host Colwyn Bay at the Jakemans Stadium on Sunday (KO 3pm), looking to add to the 3-2 victory they earned in Wales in August.
