Graham Drury believes his Boston United side need to fulfil their potential to avoid being dragged into a scrap with the sides at the bottom of the Blue Square Bet North.
Today the Pilgrims host Vauxhall Motors as they bid to end their run of five matches without victory.
Speaking after Tuesday’s defeat at Harrogate Town, Drury said: “There’s 11 games to play, and if they play like they did in the second half and stop making those mistakes then there’s lots of points to be picked up.”
United put in one of their worst performances of the campaign when they travelled to face the Motormen in December.
It was the first match following the sacking of manager Jason Lee and they were comprehensively beaten 4-0, with the hosts also failing to convert a penalty.
Caretaker boss Graham Hyde even accused his team of ‘feeling sorry for themselves’ on the day.
Vauxhall have lost their last three matches, following a tough run of fixtures against FC Halifax, Chester and Bradford Park Avenue.
However, prior to that they beat highflying Guiseley 2-0.
Phil Watt will be available for United after completing a two-match suspension.
