Craig Elliott didn’t pull any punches after watching his Boston United side beaten 2-1 by Altrincham. Josh Hancock and Jordan Hulme netted the winning goals in a display the Pilgrims boss described as spineless, atrocious and abysmal.Ben Davies gave Boston hope with 10 minutes to go as he converted from the spot, but the hosts lacked the firepower and belief to get anything from the game.Here is the manager’s comments in full:“I didn’t see it coming, the first half. To use words like spineless and lack of effort, it hurts me to say that as they’ve been anything but that in the last month. “I think we’ve shown a lot of heart and I thought we were slowly getting there. Then we get this again, and it hurts me.“It’s hard to defend them, how can I defend individuals, a groups of players, when you play so poorly like that in the first half. “Take the second half away as it’s so easy to come out and have a better reaction.

Boston United’s winless run stretched to five matches as they were beaten 2-1 by Altrincham. Josh Hancock and Jordan Hulme netted the vital goals for the Robins, who thoroughly deserved the three points with a dominant display.Ben Davies gave the Pilgrims hope from the spot but it was too little too late for a side that showed hardly enough bite or ambition in attack throughout the game.And the hosts had keeper George Willis to thank that they were even in with a shout of snatching a leveller as he kept them in the game with a series of superb stops.Callum Chettle became the 42nd player to feature for the Pilgrims this term as the Alfreton Town loanee made his debut in a three-man midfield, the only change to the side which drew at his parent club on New Year’s Day.He came in for Jay Rollins, who was set to take a spot on the bench following two starts in four days on his return from a groin injury, but was replaced by Sebastian Malkowski after feeling a twinge in the … [Read more...] about BOSTON UNITED 1 ALTRINCHAM 2: Late flourish not enough as Pilgrims go five without a win
Boston United are looking to turn draws into victories as they host Altrincham this afternoon. The Pilgrims conceded late goals in their past two matches to see victories become stalemates.And Craig Elliott wants his squad to learn from those two contests.“If we beat Bradford and Alfreton they we’re flying,” the manager said, thinking of what might have been.“But it’s two unbeaten and we’ve got to look to the positives and build from there.”Loan signing Callum Chettle could make his debut for Boston this afternoon, and would become the 42nd player to represent the club this term if he does.But there will be no Danny Rowe after it was announced the striker has left the club by mutual consent.Goals from Nathan Arnold and Adam Marriott saw United win 2-0 in the reverse fixture at Moss Lane earlier this season.Dean Watson - who sent off George Willis and Ben Middleton in the Pilgrims’s 1-0 defeat at Darlington this campaign - will be the … [Read more...] about Chettle in, Rowe out!
