It’s too soon for Boston United to start celebrating, warns Grant Roberts

Grant Roberts says it is too early for Boston United to start celebrating.

The midfielder scored his first Pilgrims goal on Saturday as the 4-1 victory at Solihull Moors secured a place in the play-offs.

However, Roberts knows that the knockout matches awaiting United will be the hardest tests they will come up against all season.

“There’s still a long way to go,” Roberts told The Standard.

“The goal was to get into the play offs.

“The goal we set has been reached, but now we’re in there we want to win the semis and the final.”

Roberts’ first Boston goal was a real collectors’ item, hammered home from more than 25 yards out.

“I don’t score many, so to hit it like that and it to go in was great,” added Roberts, who played as a striker as a youngster.

“I’d like to score a few more but I was just pleased to take the pressure off the team.

“I’m not sure where it came from. I just smashed it and it went in the top corner.

“I was surprised to be honest, when I was walking back for the re-start I was thinking ‘have I just scored’?”
