It’s not over yet! Boston United vow to have their say in the Skrill North title race

Boston United defender Stefan Galinski is desperate to have a say in the Skrill North title fight.

The Pilgrims host Skrill North leaders Ferriby at York Street this afternoon (KO 3pm), and the 20-year-old wants to take another big scalp before the season concludes.

“Nothing would give me greater satisfaction than having a say in who won the league,” Galinski told The Standard.

“It’s our job to try to make them slip up.”

Ferriby recorded a comfortable 3-0 against Boston back in August, a match which was Galinski’s Skrill North debut.

And it was just seconds after the central defender was brought on that the Pilgrims were picking goal number three out of the net.

But with those thoughts still in the back of his mind, Galinski want to even the score.

“We owe Ferriby one after they beat us 3-0 at their place,” he added.

“That was earlier in the season. I’m a much better player now and I’d like to show Ferriby that.”

Ferriby are locked on 81 points alongside AFC Telford United, but their superior goal difference sees the Villagers sitting pretty in the automatic promotion spot.

Boston, meanwhile, still have a slim chance of finishing in the play-off zone, although they trail Gusieley by five points with just two matches remaining.

Boston boss Dennis Greene believes that leapfrogging the Lions will be an impossible task, but he is adamant his team still have a job to do.

He said: “We’re eight games unbeaten, we’ve been fantastic and we’ll go again on Monday.

“When we play Ferriby I’ve got to think of Liam Watson at Telford and I’ve got to think of Altrincham.

“At the end of the day, they would expect me, as a manager, to do it corectly.

“We’ll be there on Monday and we’ll be looking to win a football match.”

Boston may not have beaten any of their fellow top seven clubs on the road this season, but their record at home is far superior.

They have recorded victories against Altrincham, Hednesford Town and Guiseley, while drawing with Telford and suffering a narrow 2-1 defeat to Brackley.

Former Pilgrim Jamie Yates will miss out on his York Street return after being stretchered off for Ferriby on Saturday.
