Dennis Greene cut a frustrated figure at full time, despite watching his side score late on to to snatch a 3-3 draw at Salford City.

After seeing his Pilgrims take a 2-1 lead into the second half, he was left frustrated that he wasn’t boarding the bus with all three National League North points.

“I would have been happy with a point before the game,” he lamented.

“After the game no, because I think we’ve set up in a 5-4-1 to counter attack and set little traps.

“At half time we looked comfortable and they hadn’t really threatened us from open play.

“At half time I felt comfortable, then they got two goals in quick succession from nothing.

“It was just five minutes of really poor defending and I couldn’t see how we goy ourselves 3-2 down, it was scrappy little things.”

Jay Rollins and Richie Allen’s own goal saw United lead 2-1 at the break, the deficit cut by Michael Nottingham .

However, James Poole and John Johnston edged the Ammies in front, only for Gregg Smith to snatch a draw.

And that late fightback and refusal to give up, however, did give Greene’s cloud a silver lining.

“But at 3-2 down we’re pleased to get something from the game,” he added.

“We got back in it quickly and we’ve seen the game out.”

The result sees Boston sit 13th in the table.
