Boston United’s promotion push is back on track - according to captain Scott Garner.

Saturday’s 2-2 draw at AFC Telford United saw the Pilgrims fight back from 2-0 down to earn a point and stretch their unbeaten run to four matches.

And after picking up 10 points in those contests, Garner believes the squad are returning to the high levels set by the squad last season.

“The last month’s been a brilliant month for us,” he said.

“We didn’t get the win (at Telford) but you can see the character installed in us.

“We’re never beaten and we can always create chances and fight back.”

When asked if he believes Boston still have a chance of a top-five finish and promotion to the National League, the United skipper replied ‘100 per cent’.

“Weve shown grit, determination and fight,” he added.

“We’re definitely clicking, full of energy and going into every game feeling confident.”

Boston are now looking to edge closer to the top five when they host promoted FC United of Manchester on Saturday (KO 3pm).

The Pilgrims have faced FC United five times in UniBond Premier and FA Trophy action between 2008 and 2010.

Boston have won four times, losing the other.
