Midfielder ready for Alfreton test...

Connor Dimaio wants to add more goals to his game.

The midfielder became the first Boston United player to score at the Jakemans Community Stadium with his inch-perfect curling effort during last week’s FA Trophy victory over AFC Fylde.

Since his arrival in the summer the ex-Stockport County and Chesterfield man has caught the eye with his quick feet and turn of pace.

But after talks with manager Craig Elliott, Dimaio is hungry for more end product.

He said: “I've always liked watching skillful players and I pride myself on having those sort of touches and making things happen.

”With the gaffer, he says I need to shoot more. I did create a few yards with my feet (against Fylde) and hopefully I can score a few more now.”

United host Alfreton Town today (KO 3pm), which meant the players couldn’t over indulge at Christmas.

”You've got to be careful what we eat and drink so we can play well Boxing Day,” Dimaio added.

”We can eat and drink after that.”

Dimaio saw two assists chalked off after United were told their abandoned match at Darlington must be replayed.

But the midfielder says the Pilgrims will channel those frustrations for the rest of the campsign.

“All the lads are frustrated but we cant’t do anything about that,” he said.

“We've got to go and do it again up there. You’ve got the channel it as a positive otherwise you let it become a negative and that’ll cary on and carry on.

“We've got to be positive about it. We’ve just beaten Fylde, a good team. Hopefully we can start kicking on now.”
