“There are no bankers in this league!” Dennis Greene warns Boston United not to take Hinckley lightly

Boston United boss Dennis Greene has warned his side to take Hinckley lightly at their peril.

The Knitters are already relegated, having won just one of their 33 matches before last night this Blue Square Bet North season.

However, that victory came at York Street just three contests into the campaign.

On that day, Spencer Weir-Daley’s goal wasn’t enough for the Pilgrims, as Aaron Wint and Danny Bragoli netted in a 2-1 victory for the Leicestershire side.

United have an odd record in the league this season, being the only team to have lost to bottom side Hinckley and the only side to have beaten league leaders Chester FC.

Now Greene, who has taken over as manager after both those results, is hoping not to become the second boss to suffer a defeat to the Knitters on Saturday.

He said: “Of course, we’ve lost to Hinckley already this season and that was at home.

“There are no bankers in this league.

“On paper, they’ve only won one game and it looks like one we can win.

“However, it depends how the lads bounce back after losing (4-0 to Bradford Park Avenue).”

Jason Lee was the man who led Boston to both defeat and victory against Hinckley and Chester.

Saturday’s defeat to Bradford was Greene’s first loss as manager.

But having won his opening three contests, he is not pushing the panic button just yet.

He added: “If this was the start of the season and you told me I’d win three out of four I’d bite your hand off.

“If you win six out of eight games all season we’d be in the play offs.”

Kick off is 3pm.
