Kaine Felix has warned his Boston United teammates that there’s no room for complacency at the Jakemans Stadium.

After completing a two-match suspension, the tricky teenager made his Pilgrims debut from the bench on Saturday.

And he made an instant impact as his pace and quick feet earned his side a penalty as they left Colwyn Bay with a 3-2 victory.

United may be second in the Vanarama North with three straight wins, but Felix believes that the hard work begins now.

“I don’t think we’re a walkover team at all,” he said. “But I don’t think any team in this division’s a walkover.

“You’ve got to be on your game very single game.

“You can’t just think ‘we’re going to beat the big spenders or beat the favourites for the league’.

“You’ve got to play every game as if it’s your last and hopefully get a win out of it - that’s what we’ve done in the last three games.”

United host North Ferriby United on Saturday, before Monday’s visit to Tamworth.

Both matches are potential banana skins against opposition who also have designs on promotion.

However, Felix believes that if United want to be the best they’ve got to go out and beat their strongest opposition.

He added: “It’s a very, very long way to go, but starting off with three wins is great.

“The bar’s there but we have to keep on raising it otherwise other teams will catch us.”

Felix remains confident that - despite their storming start - this United side are by no means the finished article and have planty of improving to do.

“There’s a lot of youth in this team and we’ve all got a lot to learn,” the 19-year-old admitted.

“Sometimes it’s easy to watch from the sidelines and say ‘you should be doing that and you should be doing this’.

“But we’re learning and geting these things done early in the season and still picking up victories.”
