After picking up his first away point of the season, Dennis Greene believes his Boston United side have turned a corner.

Gregg Smith handed the Pilgrims the lead at Stockport County this afternoon, only for Danny Lloyd to capitalise on Liam Agnew’s error and level two minutes after the interval.

But after four straight losses on the road, United can finally get on a bus with somthing to show for their efforts.

“I think the last two or three performances are suggesting that (we’ve improved),” Greene said.

“We’ve stopped conceding an avalanche of goals, we look like we can score and we’ve got a team coming together.

“It can only get better.

“Once we get a team back together that’ll be a bonus.

“Every week that passes, Browny gets a week closer, Grant gets a week closer.”

Indeed, Nat Brown and Grant Roberts may be closer to getting over their injuries, and Waide Fairhurst and Kalern Thomas both returned from absences today, but Herve Pepe-Ngoma became the latest player to pick up a knock this afternoon.

The German midfielder was taken to hospital after popping his knee out of place after jarring his leg on the floor in the 35th minute.

“We’re waiting to see how long he’ll be out,” added Greene who had to make do without Callum Chippendale today after his hamstring injury picked up in training on Thursday.

But despite picking up a point today, Greene felt it could have been more.

He added: “I’d say it was two lost because we were comfortable at half time, 1-0 up.

“We should have managed the game better.

“We haven’t got the second goal but we defended well at times as we were under pressure from long throws and free kicks.

“I’m happy with the point, but with the position we were in at half time I was disappointed we didn’t win it really.”
