Go on a run and we can win it! Boston united boss Greene leads battle cry

Dennis Greene wants his Boston United side to be the surprise package in the Skrill North’s title run in.

It’s at this stage of the season when one side often comes good, putting in a late surge up the table.

And the Pilgrims manager thinks there is no reason why his team cannot do just that.

“We’ve been one of the most consitent sides this season, but we still haven’t really been on that big run yet,” Greene said.

“I think the best we’ve probably been on is recently when we won five, drew one and lost one.

“It’s good for us that we still haven’t lost back-to-back matches in the league.

“And if we can keep picking up points we can finish in the top five.

“But if we do go on that big run then it’s possible we can win it, the teams at the top aren’t that far in front of us.”

The Pilgrims will be looking to get over their recent 2-1 defeat to Brackley Town by getting back to winning ways at Harrogate Town on Saturday (KO 3pm).

Boston don’t have a good record against Harrogate, having beaten them just twice in nine attempts since dropping out of the Football League.

However, both those victories have come at Wetherby Road.

Before United’s 3-3 draw with Simon Weaver’s side earlier this campaign, they had lost their three previous matches against Harrogate.

United’s last victory at Wetherby Road came on August 27, 2011, when Marc Newsham and Jason Lee found the net.

Their previous success was in the 2010-11 campaign, where Shaun Pearson, Ryan Semple, Anthony Church, Spencer Weir-Daley and Jamie Yates were among the scorers in a 6-3 result.
