Greg Tempest has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

The on-loan Notts County utility man has mised the Pilgrims’ last two matches through injury.

And following yesterday’s 3-1 victory at Hyde, manager Dennis Greene confirmed that Tempest will not return to action this campaign.

“He won’t play again this season,” Greene said.

“It’s a loss to the squad, but we’ve got a good starting XI.

“We’d love to have him available, but he isn’t.”

Reflecting on Boston’s 3-1 victory at the Vanarama North’s basement side, the manager admitted he was pleased by picking up all three points at a place which could have been a potential banana skin.

“We’ve come away from home, in a tricky fixture, and we’ve come away comfortable 3-1 winners,” Greene said.

“It’s a good away day.”

However, after goals from Dayle Southwell, Mark Jones and Kyle Dixon had given the Pilgrims a comfortable lead, Pete Boyle netted a consolation at the death, before further chances almost reduced the arrears further.

Greene is calling on his side - who have kept four clean sheets in 35 matches this season - to start standing firm until the final whistle.

“We’ve got to get that out of our system because sometimes that one goal could be the difference between winning and drawing,” he added.

“You can’t always be 3-0 up, we might be 1-0 up.

“We always seem to make one stupid mistake. It’s a gift.

“Up until then it’s a great away performance.”
