This is my best Boston United squad - Greene

Can Boston United return to the National League and a few more grudge games?
Can Boston United return to the National League and a few more grudge games?

Dennis Greene believes he is currently working with the best squad he has known at Boston United.

Having already guided the Pilgrims to third and sixth-place finishes, the manager reckons the current crop have all the ability to exceed those previous positions.

And he hopes his players will prove just that with yet another trademark strong second half to the season, and a finish in the play-off spots.

With Jones brothers Mark and Richard and striker John Sands yet to come back from injury - plus and Kaine Felix and Jay Rollins returning to their best following long-term injury lay-offs - Greene hopes the future can be bright.

He said: “We’re getting there.

“We’re only two or three players away from being our strongest side, albeit we need Rollins and Felix to get more games.

“We’re now getting them out on the pitch.

“Hopefully, with 20 games to go the run-in now will be able to get a few back and hopefully be at full strength soon.”

After the 1-0 victory at Solihull Moors, Greene had mixed emotion sabout the Pilgrims not having a match this weekend, due to being eliminated from the FA Trophy.

He said: “You want to keep that winning momentum going, that’s two wins in the league (in a row).”

However, he also thinks the blank weekend would be a good opportunity for some players to recuperate, particularly leading scorer Dayle Southwell, who hobbled off following that win at Solihull with a swollen foot.

“At the end of the day we’ll have some rest and we’ll enjoy it,” he added. “We’ve got a fantastic squad, the best squad since I’ve been at the football club.

“Hopefully, we can make the play offs and win them.

“We’ve got 36 points. We’re in the same position as last year and we’ve got a better squad and played most of the best teams now.”
