Craig Elliott praised ‘unplayable’ Gavin Allott and ‘brave’ Max Wright as Boston United thrashed Ashton United 5-0 yesterday.
Grimsby Town loanee Wright netted an exciting first-half brace, both goals a mixture of quick feet and precision shooting.
But it’s the Max power, the young winger’s willingnes to shrug off the rough treatment he receives, which most impressed the manager.
“Max, I don’t think the referee protected him,” Elliott said.
“But what I like about Max is he’s brave and you can’t kick him out of the game.
“His (second) goal was unbelievable.
“I’m really pelased for him, he’s a great lad.”
Nicky Walker also marked his return from injury with a brace while Allott, who chipped in with three first-half assists, grabbed number five.
“Unplayable, he was terrific,” Elliott said of Allott.
“His hold up play, fast over the top and totally deserved his goal.
“He’s shown what a top quality player he can be.”
Boston’s thumping victory was an improvement on the 1-1 draw at Hurst Cross in the league three weeks earlier.
“We would have liked to have won three weeks ago, but we played a lot better,” Elliott said.
“We were really, really good from the first minute and scored some amazing, top-quality goals.
“I’m really happy with the clean sheet and scoring goals.
“We had good control all over the park, looked confident on the ball and created some good moments througout the 90 minutes.
“The finishing was clinical, which it hasn’t been in some games.”
