Missed chances left Boston United boss Dennis Greene frustrated at Bower Fold.

But after watching his side earn a point at Stalybridge Celtic, the Pilgrims boss also took time to praise his squad for creating chances and stretching their unbeaten run to seven matches.

“It’s just a game of missed chances, in the first half we were in total control,” Greene said.

“One goal wasn’t enough and we just haven’t put it to bed.

“It took one lapse of concentration from a corner and they equalised.

“As hard as we pushed, we just couldn’t get the win.”

Scott Garner put United ahead in the first minute, in a contest where Kaine Felix rattled the bar and Dayle Southwell just couldn’t find the net.

“It was a great start from Garns,” Greene added.

“We said to him before the start that with Jona (Mark Jones) out we needed the big fella, Pidge (Carl Piergianni) and the other lads to take responsibility.

“But the fans won’t be disappointed with the lads today, they know they worked hard.”
