Manager Dennis Greene believes the next four matches will decide whether or not Boston United can win promotion from the Skrill North.

The Pilgrims put in a superb performance to beat play-off rivals Hednesford Town today.

Now Greene is urging his squad not to rest on their laurels, looking for a minumum of nine points from their next four matches.

That haul, he reckons, will be enough for United to get a foothold in the top five.

“If we can win three of our next four games - and there’s home games against Gloucester and Oxford in there - you’ll get five or six points in on the other teams,” Greene said.

“If you include today’s game then we could be picking up 12 points or so from a possible 15.

“The next four games are crucial for us. They’ll decide whether we make the play-offs.”

Ricky Miller, Scott Garner, Liam Agnew and Ben Milnes netted for United this afternoon - a result which Greene believes is the perfect tonic following last week’s controversial 4-0 defeat at Harrogate Town.

“After last week you just want the next game to come round quickly,” the manager added.

“This time it’s a massive game against Hednesford. To score four and keep a clean sheet is very satisfying.

“The most important thing is the three points, but to get the goal difference back - it shows today we go ahead of Brackley on goal difference - it’s an extra point.

“That will give the lads real good confidence. We put in a real good performance.”

United now travel to face Workington on Saturday. This will be followed by home clashes against Gloucester City and Oxford City, either side of a trek to Barrow.

Greene also took time to praise on-loan Sunderland youngsters Agnew - who netted his first senior goal today - and David Ferguson, who impressed on his debut.

“(Liam’s) got better and better every game,” said Greene.

“Fergie’s had a real good debut and he’ll get better and better.

“It’s just a really good win for us. That win could potentially get us a third spot as a minimum.”
