Sleaford 5, Boston Town 4

Ten-man Poachers are edged out in nine-goal derby thriller

This ding-dong Lincs derby will live long in fans' memories - but Boston boss Dan Barrett will be unhappy at the outcome.

Coupland put the hosts in front, scoring the rebound after his penalty was pushed onto the post by debutant keeper Liam Higton.

Jack Wightwick cancelled out that effort but Liam Tunstall netted twice to put Sleaford in control before Wightwick made it 3-2.

An own goal levelled it up at 3-3 but Lori Bobely was sent off after being shown a second yellow and Sleaford then went back ahead.

Incredibly, Alex Beck made it 4-4 but Sleaford still had one more goal in them to take all three points.

Town: Higton, Lowe, Jackson, Cross (Playford), Wood, Ashton (Lambley), Borbely, Mitchell, Beck, Lobendhan, Wightwick
