VIDEO: 'We deserved it' - Dennis Greene on Boston United's win over Worcester City
Dennis Greene felt Boston United were full value for their 2-1 victory over Worcester City despite enduring a late barrage from the visitors.
Goals from Marc Newsham and Spencer Weir-Daley sandwiched a Daniel Nti strike just before half-time. Worcester piled on the pressure in search of an equaliser in the closing stages, hitting the bar and the post, but Boston held on to take their points tally in Skrill North to 10 after just five games.
“Our first half performance warranted that victory. We should have gone in three goals to the good,” said Greene. “We gifted them their goal and Ashley (Timms) had not had a save to make.”
Greene reserved praise for Newsham, whose first half goal came just two minutes after he saw a penalty saved by Worcester keeper Jose Veiga.
“It was a great response from him, but that’s Newsh. He’s got three goals in five and he can certainly finish. He’ll never give up. Last week (against Leamington), he had four chances before putting one away.”
Meanwhile, Gary Mills’ future at United looks uncertain after he joined King’s Lynn on a three-month loan deal earlier this week.
The midfielder has failed to make a competitive appearance for the Pilgrims since joining the club in the summer after missing the second half of last season with a serious knee injury.
“He hasn’t really proved his fitness since he’s been back (from injury). He played in the first few pre-season games and then picked up a problem with his Achilles,” said Greene.
“He hasn’t really played for five weeks, which has been a problem, and it’s probably going to take him another four weeks to get fit for this level.
“It’s not really happened for him at Boston so he’s gone out on loan for three months. If he stays injury-free for three months and plays well, there might be an opportunity for him to come back.”
