“No chickens tonight!” Greene vows to grab a lucky KFC after watching Boston United pick up their second win of the season

Dennis Greene has vowed to grab himself a lucky Kentucky Fried Chicken ahead of Saturday’s trip to Stockport.

The Boston United manager celebrated tonight’s 1-0 victory over Bradford Park Avenue by dancing the Funky Chicken jig on the Jakemans Stadium turf following Gregg Smith’s 82nd-minute winner.

“I’ve still got the moves. I’ve done the Funky Chicken,” explained a buoyant Greene after his side’s second win of the National League North campaign, before breaking into song.

“Ooh, ooh, ooh, the funky chicken,” he added, going on to explain his celebration.

“I had a KFC on the way in as I didn’t have time for dinner, so I thought I’d have a nice little KFC celebration.”

“I’ll be stopping when we meet at Newark (on Saturday).

“I’ll be straight in the KFC, and if we can get the win at Stockport I’ll have a chicken dinner and do the dance.”

Victory, of course, takes little more than fast food to be earned.

And after some recent performances which could only be described as a Boneless Banquet, the United fans finally got their Zinger tonight.

Greene put his faith in youth, picking a starting XI with an average age of 22 - and pushed wingers Jason St Juste and Marcus Marshall into defence.

Explaning his tactics, Greene added: “When you have bad results you’ve got to do something to get out of a rut.

“We were brave, trying to do something different, play the wingers as full backs and try to get them up the pitch and overload the midfield.

“Doing something different gives a bit of belief.

“You keep playing the same formation and getting the same results, mentally they’re thinking ‘we’ll probably lose this anyway’.

“It was brave but it paid off. There weren’t any chickens out there tonight.”
