“I don’t want this season to end!” Jones hails Pilgrims spirit as they edge closer to the Vanarama North’s top five

Mark Jones says Boston United are starting to believe they can book their place in the Vanarama North play-offs.

The striker scored the only goal of the game as the Pilgrims won 1-0 at Gloucester City this afternoon - keeping sixth-placed Boston in the hunt as teams around them dropped points.

“There is a sense of belief, we can only keep winning our games,” Jones said.

“If teams keep dropping points then it’s good for us.

“If this team sticks together it can definitely go places.”

Jones struck with 14 minutes remaining, making the most of James Bowern’s weak clearance in an edgy contest.

And now he is hoping to add to his nine goals.

Jones added: “It just fell to me really.

“I’ve just made contact and it’s gone into the bottom corner.

“You have to be in and around there as a striker and I’ve put it away and put the team 1-0 up.

“Every game’s a cup final.

“Normally towards the end of the season you’re wanting a break and trying to get away from it.

“But I don’t want this season to end, I want it to carry on game after game.

“I’m enjoying it and every game’s massive.”

Manager Dennis Greene marked his 100th game in charge with his 46th victory.

He said: “Games like this are tough at the end of the season when three points are vital and players get edgy.

“There wasn’t a lot of great football played, but the good chances today were created by us.

“We’re thankful for the three points.”
