Boston United midfielder Indy Aujla wants to establish himself in Boston United’s midfield.

The 26-year-old has featured regularly for the Pilgrims since joining in September, although he has been handed just two starts in the Skrill North.

But after making the second of those during last week’s derby victory at Gainsborough Trinity, Aujla hopes he has done enough to hold down a regular starting berth.

“I’ve had to be patient and work hard, we’ve got some very good players in the team,” he told The Standard.

“But I’m happy to play my part and, hopefully, I can start making some more starts.”

Aujla has found himself competing with Ian Ross, Ben Milnes, Jake Hall and Conor Marshall for a place in the centre of the park.

But he believes that the amount of talent at the club is only bringing out the best in the squad.

He continued: “We’ve got a bit of a competitive edge in the squad and that’s what everybody needs.

“It keeps us on our toes.

“The manager’s brought in some very good additions, so it’s fantastic for Boston United Football Club.”

On Saturday, United travel to face Bradford Park Avenue (KO 3pm).

And with the action unfolding in Aujla’s home town the midfielder will be keen to be involved.

Park Avenue have already taken three points at the expense of United this season, leaving York Street with a 3-2 victory.

Manager Dennis Greene describes Bradford as the ‘best attacking team’ his club have faced so far this season.

United lost 2-1 at the Horsfall Stadium last season – the ground where they won the UniBond Premier play-off final in 2010.
