“They feel they can win every game!” Greene praises Boston United’s winning mentality

Dennis Greene believes his Boston United side have a winning mentality that can see them pick up three points at the expense of bogey side Worcester City.

After beginning the season with an impressive seven points from three matches, the Pilgrims suffered their first defeat of the Skrill North campaign on Monday, going down 3-0 at North Ferriby United.

Word from the dressing room at York Street is that United are desperate to put that loss behind them by picking up three points today.

And boss Greene has plenty of confidence in his side.

He said: “Maybe we’ve gelled quicker than expected, but I’m very pleased.

“I think there’s an attitude in the dressing room where they feel they can win every game, and that’s good.

“But we know how quickly that can change. Football never stops surprising you and if we give everything the supporters won’t complain.”

United will have to be back to their best to brush aside the Blues.

The Pilgrims and City have clashed nine times since Boston dropped out of the Football League in 2007.

Worcester have won six of those meetings, including an FA Cup success at York Street. Boston, in contrast, have won twice, with the two sides also playing out one stalemate.

However, one of United’s victories was the last time these two met. Ian Ross, Ben Milnes and Marc Newsham were on target as the Pilgrims left St George’s Lane with a 3-0 success.

Slaying the Dragons will be no easy feat though.

After kicking off the season with defeats to Altrincham (3-1) and Gloucester City (2-1), Carl Heeley’s side earned draws with highflyers Brackley Town (0-0) and Hednesford Town (2-2).

Kick off today is 3pm.
