MATT Hocking would just love it if his Boston Town side could add some shut-outs to their Kevin Keegan-style attacking philosophy.

The Poachers boss - a former Sheffield United defender - has frustratingly seen his side lose to both Deeping Rangers and Shepshed Dynamo this week, with both teams winning the contests in the 90th minute.

And now he is calling for his young side to cut down on their cavalier attacking approach, likened to the style of ex-Newcastle United and England manager Kevin Keegan.

“We’re trying to outscore teams all the time - and that doesn’t always happen,” he said.

“We don’t fear anyone and will always have a go.

“But sometimes we need to keep things a little tighter at the back, we’re playing like one of Kevin Keegan’s teams.”

Town had a spell earlier this campaign where they kept three consecutive clean sheets.

However, Town conceded six times in three matches ahead of last night’s UCL Knockout Cup match at home to rivals Spalding United.
