Stefan Galinski is urging Boston United to go out and make a name for themselves as ‘giant killers’.
The Pilgrims are desperate to book their place in the third round of the FA Trophy, but first they have to get the better of Skrill Premier Tamworth on Saturday (KO 3pm).
Having already won 2-1 at Southport, who sit a place and a point above the Lambs in the non-league’s top tier, Galinski says there is no reason why the Pilgrims can’t claim yet another higher-league scalp.
“We can definitely win it,” the defender told The Standard.
“I know a few boys at Tamworth and they’re up for the game.
“But so are we. It would be nice to cause another upset and start getting a reputation as giant killers.”
Boston’s five-match unbeaten run came to an end following a close 1-0 Skrill North defeat at Guiseley on Saturday.
But Galinski has warned Tamworth - whose FA Cup run ended with a 2-1 home defeat to League One strugglers Bristol City on Sunday - that they are facing the Pilgrims at the wrong time.
“There’s confidence in the squad,” the former Derby County man added.
“We’ll lick our wounds, maybe it’s just a rocket at the right time.
“Sometimes you play better when you’ve been knocked and I know the lads in there will respond well.”
As United manager Dennis Greene prepares his charges for the weekend’s trip to the Lamb Ground, he wants to capitalise on his hosts’ inconsistency.
He said: “It seems to me, if you look at their results, it’s just consistency they lack.
“They’ve had some brilliant results. They’re capable, but their league form lacks consistency.
“Let’s just hope we catch them having a bad day.”
