Dennis Greene is adamant that Boston United won’t take their foot off the gas when they host the Brakes.
The Pilgrims booked their place in the Vanarama North’s play-offs last weekend as Dayle Southwell’s hat-trick and Grant Roberts’ wonder strike earned a 4-1 victory at Solihull Moors.
But as relegated Leamington arrive at the Jakemans Stadium for the final round of regular league fixtures on Saturday (KO 3pm), Greene says this contest means as much as the previous 41.
“We’ve got a job to do because we’re not guaranteed third or fourth, and we’d really like that opportunity to get a home game if we were to make the final,” the manager said.
“If we come fifth that might be the difference between winning and losing a play-off final as we will be away from home.
“We’ve got a chance of coming third or fourth and the selection will be in accordance.”
The play-offs pit second against fifth and third against fourth, with the highest-placed side travelling away for the first leg on Wednesday, April 29, before hosting the second leg three days later.
The highest-placed finalist will also have the added advantage of hosting the final.
