Dennis Greene is adamant that Boston United’s opening day defeat at Stockport County won’t derail his side’s hopes of promotion from the National League North.
The 2-1 reverse came on a day when title favourites Fylde, plus hopefuls Chorley and FC United were all beaten.
And Greene believes his side also have plenty more to offer - despite showing enough positives to prove they’ll be up there and challenging towards the end of the campaign.
“Let’s hope it goes the same as last year, you lose the first game and win the league - like Barrow did,” Greene said.
“It’s not the end of the world. We’ve got a tough away fixture out the way.
“We could’ve got something out of the game. That’s the encouraging thing, we were well below par.
“They’re meant to be second favourites to win the league and we nearly got something from the game.”
United return to action on Tuesday, hosting Solihull Moors at the Jakemans Stadium.
Keeper Henrich Ravas will be unavailable after being called up the the Slovakian under 19s squad.
Greene is keeping his cards close to his chest as to who will wear the number one jersey, although former Chesterfield keeper Jason Alexander was on the bench this afternoon.
