Cameron Johnson is hoping to play a part in Saturday’s National League North clash at AFC Telford United.

The young attacker set up Ryan Robbins for the winner against Alfreton Town at the weekend, in just his second appearance for Boston United.

And after enjoying a further taste of first-team action, he is hungry for more.

“You try your hardest and try to get in the team,” said Johnson (pictured), who joined from Rossington Main this summer.

“I’ve been at other clubs and I’m used to playing 90 minutes, but it’s a big step up coming to Boston.

“I won’t expect to play every game, but I appreciatre getting on and getting a few minutes.”

Despite being used to regular football at his former club, Johnson admits he will have to bide his time to make the step up from the under 21s if he hopes to become a first-team regular.

But he is willing to play the waiting game if it means he has a future with the Pilgrims, something he wants.

“I hope so, but we can only see,” he added.

“I really like it here. It’s a good set up and with good lads.”

Saturday’s match at New Bucks Head (KO 3pm) has been rearranged due to Worcester City’s involvement in the FA Cup.

It will be the second time United have faced Telford in the space of three weekends, following Boston’s 1-0 victory at the Jakemans Stadium, courtesy of Carl Piergianni’s header.

Telford currently sit rock bottom of the division but have enjoyed better fortunes at home.

They remain pointless on the road, but Saturday saw them pick up their second win of the campaign with a 2-0 success against Stalybridge Celtic.

At home, the Bucks have won two, drawn two and lost three to date.
