Boston United captain Ian Ross is demanding an instant reaction following the Pilgrims’ 3-0 drubbing at North Ferriby.
After kicking off the Skrill North season with victories over Stockport County and Leamington, as well as a draw against AFC Telford United, Boston were put to the sword on Monday.
But Ross (pictured) believes his side must learn from their defeat at Grange Lane ahead of Worcester City’s arrival at York Street on Saturday (KO 3pm).
“It’s brought us down a peg or two, but we need to show we can pick ourselves back up,” Ross said.
“Saturday’s the perfect chance to get another three points.
“If we win against Worcester then we’re on two points per game after five matches, and that’s very good.”
Ross was on target when the Pilgrims beat Worcester 3-0 at St George’s Lane last season.
But the Blues have been a bogey team for Boston in recent years, having won five of the past seven encounters.
“Worcester’s one of those teams that you don’t know what you’re going to get when you play them,” Ross added.
“But we need to be mentally right. If everybody sticks to their jobs then we’ll be alright.”
Charley Sanders will be unavailable for the contest as he begins his three-match ban for his red card at Stockport, while Gary Mills will miss out due to injury.
