Poachers boss want to finish the season strongly
Gary Edgley has praised his side's maturity after their 6-0 demolition of Whitworth.
"After the run we have been on, I felt that only complacency would hurt us yesterday" said the Boston Town manager.
"This is a very young team but they are maturing very quickly and are learning that they have to treat every game the same, have that same desire and work rate to get a result no matter who we play.
The wind didn’t really play a part as both teams looked to play everything on the ground and with the amount of rain there had been the pitch wasn’t in too bad a condition either, so there were no excuses for either team.
We started really well again but we were wasteful in front of goal, missing three golden opportunities in the first 10 minutes but we kept pressing and attacking and our first goal came after 15 minutes. This settled us down and I was very pleased with the way my front players were working and creating chances. Two more goals followed, making it 3-0 at half time.
I reminded the players that we now needed to be professional and keep our shape and discipline and more goals would come.
Whitworth came out all guns blazing at the start of the 2nd half but we scored our fourth 15 minutes into the second half and that took all the wind out of their sails. A fifth quickly followed before we made some changes.
Whitworth had two players then sent off for dissent but there wasn’t a bad challenge all game so that most have been frustrating for their manager. We got our sixth near the end to give us a full time result of 6-0.
I was very pleased for us to have kept another clean sheet and being much more proactive going forward, we want to finish the season strongly and with the way we are playing I trust these players will make that happen.
