Boston United boss Dennis Greene wants goals, goals, goals

Happy man! Dennis Greene.

Dennis Greene has told his Boston United squad that he wants goals, goals, goals.

The Pilgrims are the Vanarama North’s third-highest scorers on 56 goals.

Only the top two of Barrow (61) and AFC Fylde (61) had scored more.

And after United’s superior goal difference kept them within a sniff of a play-off place until the final day of last season, the Pilgrims boss knows all too well the value of a strong goal difference.

“We’ve been playing make up since the Oxford game, as that hit our goal difference for six,” said the manger, reflecting on his side’s shock 7-2 drubbing in September.

“We’re making it up, doing well and looking like we can score goals.

“I’m proud of the team and we’ve made great strides.

“If we can make those play-offs we’ll make a big impact.”

Boston will now travel to face play-off rivals Guiseley on Saturday (KO 3pm) in a contest Greene described as a ‘six pointer’.

Having recently beaten Guiseley 5-1 at the Jakemans Stadium, Greene says his team must have belief.

He added: “We go in a positive mood.”
