SPENCER Weir-Daley has ordered his Boston United team-mates to raise their game and help the club fulfil its ambition of returning to non-league football’s top flight.

The Pilgrims’ leading scorer wants Boston to qualify for the play-offs in style, ensuring all Blue Square Bet North opponents fear facing them.

“We can definitely have a fantastic end to the season,” he said.

“We can be in the driving seat if we want to be. It’s just down to us to get our form up so we can go into the play-offs in the best form possible.”

Former Notts County man Weir-Daley has bagged 14 goals in 31 starts and 10 substitute appearances already this season.

The prolific forward also netted 21 times last campaign as he made 28 starts and six appearances from the bench.

However, Weir-Daley’s rallying cry may also be acting a nod to himself as well as his team-mates as he has now gone four matches without a goal, after cementing his place in the starting line-up following a brace against Harrogate, when he was introduced off the bench.

Speaking after Saturday’s draw with Hyde, Weir-Daley admitted things needed to improve in time for the visit of Blyth Spartans on Saturday.

He continued: “I think, if I’m being honest, we are on a little bit of a downer (after the result).

“But as a team we’re still in a good position.

“We did make hard work of it.

“They’re akward games (against 10 men) as they sit back and put ball in our court.

“We do need to do better and we got caught on the break.”
