Spalding Utd 2, Boston Town 3

Poachers pull off famous cup win against league leaders

It's all over and the Poachers have won 3-2 - sensational stuff!
Here's how the action unfolded:

GOAL! 3-2 - 117 mins, incredibly, Ford nips in to put Town back in front.
GOAL! 2-2 - 107 mins, Hobson gives the Poachers a lifeline! 13 minutes to go.
Half-time of extra-time - Have Boston got anything left in the tank after this wonderful effort?
100 mins - Tom Hobson comes on for Lori Borbely. Town have 20 minutes to take this to penalties.
GOAL! 2-1 - 95 mins, and now former Poacher Adam Jackson scores a screamer to rub salt into Town's wounds. This is so cruel on Boston.
Extra time now underway
FULL TIME - Extra time will be played here now and the home side must be firm favourites after that morale-sapping late goal. Can the Poachers lift themselves again?
GOAL! 1-1 - 90 mins, heartbreak for the Poachers as Ross Watson equalises at the dearh.
88 mins - Spalding thrown ex-Poacher Nathan Stainfield up front from central defence as they desperately search for a late equaliser.
85 mins - Danny Woods comes on for Paul Goodhand.
78 mins - Lee Wattam replaces Kennedy. To put this into context, Boston were 9-0 down by this stage when the teams last met in October...
70 mins - Poachers are doggedly hanging onto this slender lead - remember, no one has stopped Spalding scoring yet this season.
62 mins - Ford goes close to making it 2-0 but his shot goes just wide.
57 mins - Spalding looking more purposeful since the restart, with Ricky Drury making his best save so far from Mark Jones.
Attendance at a chilly Sir Halley Stewart is given as 113.
Second half is underway as Town bid to reach the quarter-finals of the UCL Cup.
HALF-TIME - And the Poachers go in at the interval with a shock lead. What a turn-up this would be if they could hang on. If nothing else, Boston Town have improved on their recent abysmal record against the Tulips which reads five consecutive defeats without scoring and by margins of 0-12, 0-3, 0-3, 0-4 and 0-5!
YELLOW CARD - Ollie Pinner is the first booking of the night for a trademark crunching challenge.
GOAL! 0-1 - 32 mins, Josh Ford puts the visitors ahead with a sweetly-struck free-kick!
20 mins - Still 0-0 but the chance of the game so far as Matt Kennedy's goal-bound shot is cleared off the line.

Boston Town: Drury, Lambley, Jackson, Nuttell, Wilson, Pinner, Foprd, Goodhand, Kennedy, Clare, Borbely; subs: Jack Smith, Jones, Woods, Hobson, Wattam
