Carl Piergianni says Boston United are determined to become the best team in the Vanarama North.
And the Pilgrims centre back is calling on the team to go on a winning streak which can prove that is the case.
Boston began the season with three straight victories before Saturday’s defeat to North Ferriby and Monday’s draw at Tamworth.
And now Piergianni is desperate for the team to bounce back.
“We’re here to be the best team in this league. We want to be winning this league,” he told The Standard.
“If the worst comes to the worst we still want to be finishing in the play-offs.
“It feels horrible to lose, but realistically are you going to go the whole season without losing? Probably not.
“It’s more important that we bounce back, just as we go again after a win.”
United now face a run of matches that includes home contests against Stalybridge Celtic, Gloucester City and Oxford City, as well as trips to Bradford Park Avenue and his old club Stockport County.
And the 22-year-old believes each and every one of those matches is winnable.
“We’re going into a run of games where there could be no stopping us,” he added.
“We want to go on a great run. We’ve set ourselves up nicely, now we want to keep up the high standards we have.
“We go into every game believing we can win.”
Next up for United is Saturday’s home clash against Stalybridge Celtic, and the return of keeper Lewis King - who opted to leave Boston in the summer.
Piergianni says he would have no qualms about putting a goal past his pal.
He added: “Kingy’s a good mate of mine, I was at Stockport with him as well.
“There’ll be no hard feelings, but we all want to go out and do our job and win again.”
