Boston United are hoping to get back to winning ways as they host Harrogate Town tonight (KO 7.45pm).

Saturday’s 4-3 reverse at North Ferriby saw the Pilgrims’ five-game unbeaten run ended.

But Dennis Greene is eager for his side to claim another three points and get his charge for promotion back on track.

“I was hoping for seven points from this week,” said the manager ahead of Saturday’s clash at Grange Lane, and incorproating tonight’s fixture and Saturday’s home match against Corby.

“But this just means we want to go and win our home games more.”

United beat Harrogate in this fixture last season.

After going 2-0 down in the opening few minutes, the hosts fought back to secure a 5-2 success.

Dayle Southwell scored a hat-trick that day with Mark Jones adding a brace.
