It’s now 10 successive league defeats and counting for free-falling Huntingdon Town.
Ian Edge’s inexperienced side were beaten 1-0 by Boston Town at Jubilee Park on Saturday as their drought continued.
“I’ve had one eye on next season for several weeks,” admitted Edge, whose team were due to visit Newport Pagnell last night (Tuesday). “You could say that is now one-and-a-half eyes!
“But we can’t just forget about this season and we need to ensure we play with pride and try to pick up some points.
“We’ve got to see some improvement. I’m not asking a lot of lads – I just need them to battle and get the basics right.”
Edge handed a debut to striker Roberto Da Silva on Saturday. The Portuguese frontman has played for Peterborough Sports and Peterborough Northern Star Reserves this season.
Edge highlighted the displays of local youngster Karl Anderson as a positive in recent games. The teenager has done well at left-back.

Eynesbury Rovers were undone by a player on the radar of Football League clubs on Saturday.
Martin Field’s men lost 3-0 at Leicestershire side Thurnby Nirvana for whom high-scoring midfielder Liam Canavan, a player who has had trials at League One side Swindon Town and Notts County, did the damage with a second-half hat-trick.
“One player was the difference between the two sides,” admitted Field.
“We were the better side until they went ahead and probably should have been in front ourselves.”
