Dennis Greene believes his Boston United side have got their Vanarama North rivals ‘worried’.
After recording back-to-back victories against AFC Fylde and Chorley, the Pilgrims ended Saturday in the play-off spots.
And manager Greene believes those teams with their sights set on promotion are being forced to take note.
“People are going to be worried about us,” he said.
“A few weeks ago people probably weren’t even considering us, but people sit up and listen when you beat Fylde and Chorley.”
In the space of eight days the resurgent Pilgrims ended Fylde’s 14-match unbeaten run and became the first team to win at Chorley this season.
But as United prepare to host the Magpies in the return fixture at the Jakemans Stadium on Saturday (KO 3pm), Greene is warning his side to keep their feet on the ground.
“That’s a job half done. We’ve got to do the job again at home to Chorley,” he added.
“We haven’t had any sort of consistency yet this season.
“The consistency we had last year was that we were winning at home.
“We’re getting there and, if we can stay injury free and go on a run, why can’t we win seven or eight on the trot?”
United travel to face Gainsborough Trinity on Tuesday (KO 7.45pm).
“Hopefully, we can keep this momentum going,” Greene added.
