Jay Rollins left Mill Farm looking to the positives after making his long-awaited Boston United return from injury.

The Pilgrims club captain made an appearance off the bench in the second half against AFC Fylde, his first action since August's play-off final defeat to Altrincham after breaking his toe in pre-season.

And despite the 2-1 reverse, United's first defeat of the season, the winger was delighted to be back on the pitch.

"It’s not the result I wanted to come back to, but I have to look at the positives," he told United's YouTube channel.

“I’m back on the pitch and happy about that.

“It’s been a long time but it’s worked out alright with the isolation, should have missed 10 games and I’ve only missed four, so that’s a bonus."

The recent spell of inactivity, due to a positive Covid-19 case in the camp, left United looking leggy in the second half.

But Rollins has every confidence the squad will bounce back.

“It’s going to be a strange season and a lot of things will be on and off, but you’ve got to deal with it," he continued.

“We’ve got a good squad and I think we’ll be able to compete well.

“They’ve been doing well and I can’t fault them. The squad we’ve got, you can see with the depth we’ve got. I think we can do well this season."
