Boston United boss Dennis Greene to hold talks with midfield target's club
Pilgrims boss Dennis Greene has stepped up his search for a new midfielder after Ben Milnes limped out of Tuesday’s 1-1 draw at Oxford City.
Milnes suffered a hamstring injury in the first half at Oxford and was replaced by former Norwich City youngster Michael Clunan, who made his debut for the club.
After naming the same starting line-up for the first eight games of the season, Greene is set to be forced to make his first change after admitting Milnes is unlikely to be fit for Saturday’s trip to Gloucester City.
Greene identified his midfield target weeks ago, but with a fully fit and in-form squad he has been biding his time.
“And as we’re doing so well I wouldn’t be able to start him straight away,” said Greene after Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Guiseley.
“I’m not going to bring someone in for the sake of it just to sit on the bench.
“I have got a player in mind who I can bring in. We’ll just see how this week’s games develop.”
However, the injury to Milnes has forced Greene’s hand and he held talks with the player’s Skrill Premier club yesterday (Wednesday).
One stumbling block could be the player’s wages with United hoping his parent club can meet part of his salary.
