Kyle Dixon believes that Greg Tempest has the ability to be successful at Boston United.

The duo are both currently on loan at the Jakemans Stadium from Notts County, and Dixon is backing his fellow Magpie to do the business.

He told The Standard: “He’s a great player and if he gets the chance he’ll do well.

“He’s a good ball player and has a great range of passing. I’m sure he’ll do well here.”

Tempest, a Northern Ireland under 21 international, has made 16 first-team appearances for County and also has strong links to the club, being the grandson of Magpies legend Bill Corkhill.

Corkhill made 284 league appearances for County either side of the Second World War.

However, Tempest is currently finding it tough to break into the Pilgrims starting XI.

He made his debut from the bench as Boston beat Dereham Town 3-1 in the FA Cup before making his only start in the 1-1 draw at Worcester City. He has been an unused substitute in the past two defeats.
