Poachers suffer another home defeat

Boston Town 1, Wellingborough 2

Boston Town continued to stutter towards the end of a disrupted season.

They were edged out in a game they barely deserved to lose, hitting the crossbar twice and having a goal ruled out for offside but giving away two sloppy goals.

The fates seemed to conspire against  the Poachers even before kick-off, with Nick Jackson and Alex Beck out injured and Ollie Pinner suspended. Lee Wattam and Michael Wood also failed to reappear after half-time, being replaced by Daryl Clare and newcomer Jamie Elston.

Lori Borbely shuffled his meagre pack, deploying Jason Field and Matt Kennedy in central midfield roles - and later dropping Field back to central defence.

Wellingborough took an early lead after some slack marking at a corner but the hosts were deservedly level by half-time, Kennedy nodding home from close range after Aaron Eyett hit the woodwork following great build-up work by Ryan Oliver. Eyett was a handful throughout and coudl have scored at least one himself, but his composure in front of goal didn't match his pace and trickery.

An Oliver effort was also chalked off for offside as Town finished the first half in the ascendancy.

More disorganised defending allowed the visitors back in front after the break and despite some sustained pressure on the Wellingborough goal, Boston just couldn't grab an equaliser. The closest they came was when Kennedy hit the bar with a fine looping header and Oliver followed suit with a long-range free-kick.

Town: Doughty, Broom, Mckue, S Ashton, Wood (Clare), Field, Eyett, Wattam (Elston), Orrey, Oliver, Kennedy
