Mark Angel believes that his Boston Town squad have shown a glimmer of what’s to come.
The Poachers were beaten 6-1 by Boston United in their first pre-season game of the campaign yesterday.
But after slumping to a 5-0 interval deficit, the new Town boss believed the club showed more of its potential following a half-time talking to.
“We didn’t start well and were slow out the traps,” said Angel, whose side have only trained twice since the summer break.
“Possibly fitness plays a part.
“We had a bit of a go at half timeand said the least we expect is that effort and work rate.
“To be fair the boys went out second half and did well.
“It’s not about the result, it’s pre-season.”
Aaron Eyett headed home Town’s consolation after the break, but keeper James Doughty stole the show with a series of good stops.
Angel added: “He’s brilliant, he’s done really well.
“If I’m being honest we’ve got a good core there.”
