Boston United boss Dennis Greene says squad are playing their way into his plans
BOSTON United manager Dennis Greene says his in-form squad are playing their way into his plans for next season.
The Pilgrims continued their remarkable turnaround under Greene with a stunning 3-0 victory at Worcester City on Saturday – their third win in a row.
Having not conceded a goal in that time, Greene accepts his players still need to prove they have the character to fight back from a losing situation.
But ahead of Saturday's home clash with Bradford Park Avenue in Blue Square Bet North, he says the team could not have done more so far to earn a future at the club beyond the end of this season.
"I want the players to show me, if they go 1-0 down, that I haven't got to dismantle this squad in the summer," said Greene.
"I want them to show me they've got the character to come back and that I've only got to tweak the squad a little for us to give it a good go next season.
"But we haven't conceded a goal yet. That's three unbelievable results and maybe there's not too much wrong with the squad."
Greene was initially handed the reigns until the end of the season following the sacking of Graham Drury.
But barring a spectacular collapse over the remaining games, Greene is set to be offered a deal for next season.
"That's down to the chairman (David Newton)," said Greene.
"All I can do is concentrate on the next game."
Greene made his first acquisition last week by bring defender Gary Silk back to the club, just weeks after being released by Drury.
"He's part of a group of players who have been in it together," added Greene.
"Rather than bring in a new signing that's got to join in with the lads, we've got someone who knows the lads already.
"Silky gives us good balance in the right areas. He can play at right-back or centre-half.
"He'll help the squad all round and he wants to play for Boston United, and with people who want to play for the club, you've always got a chance.
"I knew Silky's heart was in it and I also knew he was a very good footballer."
