Zak Mills is backing Boston United to make it a lucky 13.

The Pilgrims have that many matches left to ensure they finish in the Vanarama North’s play-off spots.

Manager Dennis Greene has challenged his squad to win nine more matches this campaign, and Mills believes that - and a top-five finish - can be achieved by the Pilgrims.

He added: “We’ve got 13 games left to keep winning.

“We want points here, there and everywhere.

“We need to keep winning and then the play-offs are in sight.

“The squad we’ve got, I don’t see why we can’t go on a good run.”

Mills is fighting to be fit for Saturday’s visit of Bradford Park Avenue, after playing through the pain barrier with a sore foot during the 3-1 victory at Hyde.

He added: “I hope (I can be fit). It eased off towards the end, but for the first 60 minutes I was really struggling.

“Hopefully, if I can rest it up, it should be fine.”

Mills is currently in discussions regarding a new deal with the club, adding: “We’re in talks about a contract and I’m hoping to get that signed.

“I’d like to stay here.”
