Nicky Walker is calling on Boston United to start ‘smashing’ their National League North opponents.

After a stuttering start to the campaign, Dennis Greene’s side picked up their second victory in eight matches on Saturday, leaving Nuneaton Town with a 3-1 success.

Now the winger hopes the performance can be the catalyst which sees the club rekindle the form they displayed during the second half of last season.

Highlights from that campaign included ending the season with a 12-match unbeaten run and a six-game home sequence where they claimed 16 points and won five of those matches by scoring five times.

“We need to go on a run and really start smashing teams like last season. That’s our plan,” said Walker, who believes there is still room for improvement.

“We’ve got players here who went on that 12-game unbeaten run at the end of last season.

“Everyone just needs to have a look at themselves and see where they can do better individually.

“Maybe if we get more confident with the ball and start dictating games again then we can do it.”

Walker left the Jakemans Stadium in the summer but recently returned to the club.

And he admits that he’s happy to be a Pilgrim again.

He added: “It’s great to be back.

“The following we get away and the crowds at home are great.

“The lads have welcomed me back and it’s great to be back.”
