BOSTON United defender Mark Greaves admits a final-day cliffhanger at Wrexham could still be on the cards, despite his side’s 4-1 victory against Macclesfield Town earlier this week.
The Pilgrims were the only team in the bottom five to taste success in the Bank Holiday fixtures and climbed three points ahead of the Dragons, who lost 1-0 at home Notts County.
But Greaves, 32, warned: “I can still see it going down to the last game of the season at Wrexham.
“We’ve got two big home games before that against Chester and Torquay – they could be key.
“Unfortunately, we still find ourselves looking at other results, although things are now very much in our own hands.
“The massive cheer from the crowd after Monday’s game told us that Wrexham had lost to Notts County and that’s a big result.”
Greaves turned in a man-of-the-match display against the Silkmen, which he capped by heading home the game-clinching third goal.
However, the former Hull City man is a major doubt for Saturday’s long trip to Hereford after limping off with a calf injury.
“Hopefully it was just a bit of cramp in the calf, but if it turns out to be a pull, I might be out for a while,” he confessed.
“I needed to come off to give myself the best possible chance of playing at Hereford on Saturday.
“I’m at the age where you tend to pick up little niggles, especially after playing two really hard games in just three days.
“Perhaps us leading 4-0 at half time would have been just, but at 2-0, Macc still had a chance if they scored the next goal.
“But once we got the third, the game was ours for the taking.”
Players and staff at the club are still waiting to receive their wages for March – and Greaves admits the Pilgrims’ off-pitch problems are a constant concern.
“It’s difficult to assess to be honest, but it certainly doesn’t help,” he explained.
“But we’ve got some good professionals in the dressing room who know we just have to dig in deep.”
