Stefan Galinski says that positive thinking will help him become a sucess at Boston United.
The former Poland youth international made 40 appearances for the Pilgrims last season, with 21 of those coming from the bench.
And with Carl Piergianni, Scott Garner, Duran Reynolds and Conor Marshall all alternative options in the heart of defence, the 20-year-old knows there may be times when he’s watching from the sidelines.
However, he says he won’t be fazed, stating: “If I’m sat on the bench I won’t let it bother me.
“I’ve got the right mentality to cope with that.
“They can sign six centre backs if they want, I’ll still work hard.
“Hopefully, the gaffer knows what I can do and I’ll take every game as it is.”
It is that attitude which has seen Galinski start the season in style.
Although he began the first two matches on the campaign as a substitute, he played his part in both of the club’s opening victories of the season - scoring the only goal of the game as the Pilgrims beat Brackley in midweek.
And Galinski admits that watching others do the business in defence doesn’t frustrate him, it only makes him more determined to succeed.
“If I play 10 games or every game I’ll always give my best and take it from there,” he added.
“It only makes you hungry.
“The more you see others getting success the more you want it yourself.
“Hopefully, I’ve got my own success to come - on a personal note, but more importantly as a team.”
