Boston Town boss Gary Frost wants to tighten up his defence as the Poachers look to climb the United Counties League Premier Division table.

Frost began life in the dug-out with a 3-2 home win over strugglers Huntingdon, which saw Town move up three places to 17th on Saturday.

And while the boss says that his back four of Michael Wood, Simon Ashton, Loz Lambley and Matt Kennedy definitely have the ability and experience to battle the UCL’s best strikers, the fact that 36 goals have been shipped in 14 league games tells its own story.

“The boys who played have all been at this level long enough to know how it works, they’ve all got experience at this level for a lot of years” he said.

“Sometimes its different when you’ve had a bad run, you think differently.

“But we need to tighten up the defence and look to get the ball away.

“It’s something we’ll be working on.”

However, Saturday’s victory saw Town stretch their unbeaten run to four matches thanks to strikes from Curtis Revell, Fraser Bayliss and new signing Michael Ogboin.

They now travel to face Deeping Rangers tomorrow (KO 7.45pm).
