Dennis Greene described Boston United’s 3-0 victory at Worcester City as his best win yet at the club.

In his three contests in charge of the Pilgrims, Greene has turned the club’s ailing fortunes around.

Taking over a side which hadn’t won in seven attempts, he has transformed the squad into a team which has won three matches on the bounce, without conceding a single goal.

“Today was the best win out the three as we didn’t have to ride our luck too much at times,” Greene said following the success at St George’s Lane, a ground where Boston haven’t won since 2000.

“They put us under a bit of pressure but we defended well and thoroughly deserved the three points.”

Modest Greene chose not to take the praise for United’s resurgence.

Instead, he said it was his players who deserve the credit for the recent run of good form.

He added: “There’s no magic wand, we’re just getting results. Long may it continue.

“At the minute we’ll just enjoy it. All the boys are buzzing and I just wanted to keep a clean sheet.

“We kept another clean sheet and we’ve scored nine goals in three matches, it’s unbelievable.”

Greene also found time to joke that he wanted his side to conceded - just so he could see how his new charges react to picking the ball out of their own net.

Instead, screamers from Ian Ross and Ben Milnes and a customary tap-in from Marc Newsham - his 27th of the season - proved the difference in United’s final game at St George’s Lane, before the stadium becomes demolished to make way for a housing estate.

“It’s good to score but better to get the win,” Newsham said.

“We’re playing well and you can see the confidence in the team.

“I don’t think we looked in trouble. The early goal settled us a bit and maybe we didn’t get that earlier this season.

“We’re getting the rub of the green, but I thought we played really well.”
