Dennis Greene says Boston United have nothing to fear as they travel to face Vanarama North leaders Barrow on Saturday.

The Bluebirds have an invincible home record at Holker Street - having won all nine of their league matches so far this season.

But Greene is confident that the Pilgrims can be the first team to leave Cumbria with a victory this campaign.

Goals from Rene Steer and Chris Dickinson saw the Pilgrims beat Barrow 2-1 on the opening day of the season.

And United also enjoy putting a spanner in the works, proven as they ended Chorley’s unbeaten home record and became the first side to defeat AFC Fylde in 14 matches earlier this season.

“It’s a tough ask but hopefully the good omen is that Chorley hadn’t lost at home before we went there,” Greene said. “Fylde hadn’t lost for 14 games before we played them.

“Hopefully, we can break Barrow’s home record.”

Greene believes that Barrow should also be affording his Pilgrims plenty of respect due to their impressive record on the road this campaign, which has seen them lose just once in nine league outings.

He added: “We’re really hard to beat and we’re in good form.

“It’s a game we’ll look forward to, apart from the journey.

“We’re not going there just for a draw. We need three points the same as they do.”
