Pilgrims’ Don’t Have A Play-Off Choice

Craig Elliott accepts Boston United aren’t quite up to the play-offs - but he’s determined to eventually take them there.

The Pilgrims’ top seven hopes are all-but over, the manager claimed.

Defeat at home to Chorley means they have a six point gap to now make up.

But the manager has spoken to the Boston Standard and his mind appears make up on promotion.

“I’m fed up. I think one thing it has done is put a nail in it, we’re not good enough for the play-offs,” Elliott said.

“I’m sick of saying it at home. I think we have played well. I don’t think we’ve been bad. We’ve just not had enough.

“We’re a classic mid-table team. We’ve been fantastic away from home and I just think at home we go missing.

“I expect more from them and I think we go hiding a bit. It’s happened too many times at home.

“We lack leaders and I need to sort that. I need the right players in. I’ll go get them.

“I’ve learned a lot this year. We’ve got too many flimsy players, similar personalities where they just accept things around them.”
