Boston United striker Ben Fairclough says Dennis Greene deserves to have been given the manager’s job full time.

Having played under three bosses this season, the attacker believes the club can go places with the new gaffer.

He told The Standard: “He’s definitely the right man for the job.

“Since he’s come in he’s turned things around.

“He’s given the lads the confidence to play good football.

“He likes us to play a passing game, which plays to our strengths.”

Greene ended a seven-match winless run for Boston with his first game in charge of the club, the 4-0 victory over Gloucester.

And Fairclough says the Londoner won the dressing room over immediately.

Greene had just an hour to work with his new charges before that victory.

Fairclough (pictured) added: “He just came in and told us he knew we were capable of winning matches and playing better.

“Some people think football managers just sit there and talk tactics all the time.

“That’s not true.

“He told us good things and made us believe in oursleves.

“He changed the mood in the dressing room.

“Everyone was buzzing and looking forward to getting out and playing.”

Fairclough returned to action on Saturday following a two-game lay-off due to a mystery dead leg injury which he couldn’t shift.
