Dennis Greene is challenging his Boston United side to put Saturday’s defeat to the backs of their minds - and pick up another three points at Tamworth.

A narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of North Ferriby United ended the Pilgrims’ 100 per cent record in the Vanarama North two days ago.

But now the Pilgrims are raring to go again as they travel to face Tamworth (KO 3pm).

“When you’re playing Saturday-Monday, at least when you lose you can go and put it right on the Monday,” Greene told The Standard, issuing a rallying cry to his squad.

The Pilgrims currently sit third in the table following their three victories and one defeat.

Tamworth, in contrast, are yet to find their feet after dropping down from the Conference Premier.

They have drawn at Harrogate Town and Worcester City while, at home, they lost to Stockport County and beat Gloucester City.

“They’re trying to find their way in this division, it’s a tough division,” Greene added.

“Hopefully, we’ll catch them at a good time when their confidence is low.

“Our confidence is high, we’re above them in the division, with nine points from four games.”

United travelled to the Lamb Ground last season where they were beaten 2-0 in the FA Trophy.

However, Greene says no comparisons can be made to that contest.

“We’re in good fettle,” he continued. “If we win there we’ve got 12 points from five matches and who knows, we could be top on Monday night.

“They’re a completely new entity. We had them watched and they’re completely different to last year.

“There’s no pattern from that game to this game - it’s just another game of football we’ve got to try to win.”
