Boston United boss Dennis Greene admits he would be happy with draws from the Pilgrims’ back-to-back away fixtures this week.

The in-form side travel to second-bottom Oxford City tonight before coming up against mid-table Gloucester City on Saturday.

A win tonight could put Greene’s men level on points with top two Brackley Town and Altrincham and the manager was in confident mood ahead of the away double-header.

He told The Standard: “We are in good form and we need to continue that. I would take two draws from these next two matches. That is not to say we are not going for two victories, but points from away games are valuable come the end of the season, particularly if you can maintain your home form.

“The lads were excellent against Guiseley and it was probably the most complete performance since I have been at the football club.”

Greene will check on the progress of defender Scott Garner, who suffered an injury in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Guiseley, ahead of tonight’s clash.

If Garner misses out then Stefan Galinski will be set to make his first league start for United.

Oxford City have lost all three home games so far but won the corresponding fixture last season 4-2.
