Jay Rollins says he hopes Dennis Greene changes his mind and stays on as Boston United manager.

Yesterday, The Standard revealed that the Pilgrims boss was considering his future after the 4-1 National League North defeat to Halifax.

But Rollins, who scored his sixth goal of the campaign in that defeat, is hoping for a U-turn from the person he says he owes his United career to.

“Personally, I hope he doesn’t resign, I hope he does stay. But time will tell,” Rollins said.

“When I was brought in he offered me the deal.

“He’s been good to me and I get on really well with him.

“I think Dennis can bring the best out of players.

“Other times he can be really at you, but you need a manager who puts pressure on you as well.

“He does bring the best out in players.”

However, after being part of the side which finished fifth last season, Rollins knows that being at the Jakemans Stadium brings high expectations, and says he can sympathise with his boss.

He added: “It’s a tough one.

“It comes as a manager, when you’re not winning games, and I think he is getting to a point now where we’re not getting performances.

“At Boston you need to get thre results.”
