Scott Garner has warned Boston United’s Skrill North rivals that the Pilgrims are ready to dish out a hiding to some unlucky opponents.

The amber and blacks ended their five-match winless streak with a 5-2 success at the expense of Vauxhall Motors.

And Garner, who netted his fifth goal of the campaign after starting the match as a makeshift target man, believes his teammates have proven they can go goal crazy.

“The only disappointing thing is that we conceded two goals,” Garner told The Standard.

“It would have been nice if we could have won 5-0.

“But I think that’s just around the corner for someone now.

“At home we’re a strong team.”

After a barren spell, United finally took out their pent-up aggression on the Motormen, who have only picked up eight points away from Rivacre Park this campaign.

Marc Newsham was presented with a commemorative shirt prior to kick off, after scoring his 100th goal for the club.

And he took his tally to 102 by 5pm on Saturday, joining Garner, Ian Ross and Ricky Miller on the scoresheet.

United will be looking for a further three points tonight as they host struggling Workington (KO 7.45pm).
