Nicky Walker believes that victory at Nuneaton Town could be the catalyst for Boston United climbing up the National League North table.
The Pilgrims travel to face the Boro tomorrow, seeking their first victory in Nuneaton for 29 years.
But Walker believes that the predigree of Boston’s opponents will fire up the squad, and help them forget the slow start to the campaign which has seen the club beaten seven times in 13 competitive matches.
“Them big games sometimes get us going,” the winger said.
“Boston are seen as one of the biggest teams in this league, so often there’s an expectation that we’ll just run them (opponents) over.
“But these big games, from the start you’re going.
“They’ll expect a tough game and so do we. So hopefully we’ll start better.
“We definitely need to give it everything to get a good result against Nuneaton and maybe kick-start a run.”
The contest will be the first of three consecutive league matches against teams relegated from the Vanarama Premier last season.
The following two Saturdays will see United face AFC Telford United and Alfreton Town.
Kick off will be at 3pm.
