Paul Green has the makings of a 'brilliant' manager, according to Boston United teammate Tom Platt.

The former Derby County and Leeds United midfielder took charge of the past three Pilgrims matches following the dismissal of Craig Elliott.

With Paul Cox joining the club, Green is expected to return to playing duties after recording away draws at Gloucester City and Spennymoor Town, as well as overseeing an FA Trophy defeat at Morpeth.

But Platt says his teammate has shown a talent for manager.

"He's got a wealth of experience on the pitch and played at the highest level," Platt said of the former Republic of Ireland international.

"He's got messages and given us a lot of information over the past few weeks and, if that's what he wants to do, I think he'll be brilliant.

"I enjoyed it. It was disappointing when the old manager left. It's never nice when there's a change of manager, but we listened to what Greeny's had to say and tried to put it into practice.

"I think (at Spennymoor) was a pretty good performance. It's been good."
