Indy Aujla believes that this season’s shock draw with Harrogate Town has only made Boston United stronger.
Goals from Marc Newsham (two) and Spencer Weir-Daley saw the Pilgrims cruise into a comfortable 3-0 interval lead against Simon Weaver’s side at York Street back in October.
But three second-half goals from the visitors saw them earn a point from the Skril North encounter.
“I think we learned a big lesson that day,” admittede Aujla, who made his first start for United in that match.
“Maybe we were a bit naive. Maybe we thought we had already won the match.
“We have to give Harrogate credit for not giving up that day, but I think it did us a bit of a favour.
“In a few matches since then we’ve been in front and seen the opposition pull one back.
“But that game remains in the back of our minds and I think we’re more determined to stop that happening again.”
With Saturday’s match at Colwyn Bay postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, the Pilgrims slipped down to fifth in the table.
They now sit four points ahead of seventh-placed Harrogate, who they travel to face on Saturday (KO 3pm), but with a game in hand.
“We want three points on Saturday,” the midfielder added.
“But it’s not about getting one back, it’s about trying to get promoted.”
