We’re still reaching for the stars - boss

Boston United are refusing to give up on their dream of promotion, says Pilgrims boss Dennis Greene.

The Pilgrims may sit mid-table, but after picking up 10 points from their past four National League contests, the manager feels the only way is up.

And now he is targeting three points at home to Worcester City on Saturday (KO 3pm).

“We’ve hit the dizzy heights of halfway, but the most important thing is to keep winning,” he said.

“If we can continue that now and beat Worcester then I think you close the gap to a point where a win will get you to seventh or eight.

“We’ve got a long way to go.”

Greene says it is still far too early to rule any teams out of climbing up the table, suggesting a clearer picture will emerge around Christmas.

He added: “We’ve got 30 games to go and we just want to be in and around it on 25 games, so with 17 games to go we’re in and around it and then it becomes an exciting season again.

“If we can get into the top five again this season it would be unbelievable.

“The aim is to go 30 games unbeaten. It’s the same for everyone, but whether we can do that or not we have to see.

“We’re always aiming for the stars. When we kicked off the season we wanted to make the play-offs, that’s still the same.”

Greene, however, conceded that doing so would be a tough ask due to some strong sides in the division.

He said: “You’ve got your six up there that are expected to be fighting for the top five.

“By that I’m talking about Fylde, Harrogate, Halifax, Salford, Darlington and Kidderminster.

“But we won’t give up, I’m sure we are still going to get better.”
