Boston United’s ‘unbelievable dream’ is still alive’, says boss Dennis Greene

Boston United manager Dennis Greene is challenging his Pilgrims to go out and complete their ‘unbelievable dream’ at Worcester City on Saturday.

Following Saturday’s goalless draw at Leamington, United’s hopes of reaching the Skrill North play-offs looked all but over.

But Easter Monday’s spirited 2-0 victory against league leaders North Ferriby United - coupled with Guiseley’s shock 1-1 draw at relegated Workington - means the Pilgrim still have a slim chance of a top-five finish.

“Anything can happen now can’t it? It’s one game of football,” said Greene.

“They’re (Guiseley) playing Gloucester, who are a stronger side than Workington.

“All we can do is try to win a match of football.

“If we get the unbelievable dream, and they go and lose, we’re in it.”

Boston’s mission is simple.

If they win away against Worcester City on Saturday (KO 3pm) and Guiseley lose their home contest to Gloucester City then both sides will be locked on 75 points, but the Pilgrims’ superior goal difference will see them move up to fifth.

Any other outcome and the Lions will finish in the play-off zone.

Despite living in hope, Greene still found time to compliment his rivals, adding: “We’re on an incredible run – nine unbeaten – and we’re still not in there. Hats off to Guiseley and Hednesford, they’ve had a phenomenal run.”

Worcester City are currently playing their home matches at Kidderminster Harriers’ Aggborough Road ground.
