Boston United manager Graham Drury believes his squad need to start showing their nasty side.
Ahead of tomorrow’s Blue Square Bet North clash with Colwyn Bay, the new manager says it’s time to get tough... even if that’s with each other.
This is Drury’s attempt to instil a winning mentality into his players, where he says he will lead by example.
He said: “We’re not aggressive enough with each other on the field at times.
“I’m not going to hide behind this and players won’t be allowed to either.
“They’ve got responsibilities to Boston United Football Club, and to I’m not here to accept mistakes.”
Drury has come under fire from some fans for the way he has publicly named players when bemoaning a goal his side has conceded.
Nathan Stainfield, Tom Ward and Gary Silk have all been held to account by Drury since his arrival.
But the Boston boss says his squad should be strong enough to shrug off such incidents, adding that there will be more to come.
He added: “People will say you shouldn’t slag individuals off. You shouldn’t put your washing out there.
“People say you shouldn’t be having a go at the players in the press.
“Listen, this is a man’s game, this what we don’t do enough.”
