Boston Town 5, Harrowby United 1

A spakling second half display saw the Poachers charge to the top of the United Counties League table.

It may be early days but this second successive home victory sends out a message of intent.

And yet it was a hesitant start by Town, who were missing both Terry Fleming and Tony Battersby, two of the architects of Saturday's win against Oadby.

Harrowby looked lively on the break and took the lead after 25 minutes through a smart finish by Danny Durkin after he was given far too much space on the right.

Three minutes later Craig Parker converted from close range to resotre parity after a long-range shot was blocked.

And Matt Kennedy put Town 2-1 up after 32 minutes with a sublime free-kick from distance, curling his shot into the top corner from a central position 30 yards out.

That goal seemed to knock the stuffing out of Harrowby, who were left chasing shadows for much of the second period.

The speedy Aaron Eyett and Jack Wightwick were a constant menace down the flanks, while Kennedy and Lori Borbely became ever more influential.

Harrowby keeper Jack Drury pulled off a flying save to deny Kennedy from the penalty spot - but that proved to bejust a reprieve as Boston's pacy, attacking play continued to impress.

The irrepressible Nick Jackson bundled home the third goal at the far post on the hour mark from a cross expertly whipped in by Eyett.

Then Alex Beck rounded off the rout with two fine goals.

His first after 65 minutes was an impressive enough finish but the second six minutes later was even more exquisite, drilling the ball home from an improbably tight angle after latching onto a perfectly-weighted through-ball from Loz Lambley.

That move was started in midfield by Battersby, who came on as as second half substitute and showed his full range of deft touches.

Two games gone, six points in the bag and nine goals scored along the way - no wonder chairman Mick Vines was all smiles afterwards. He must be delighted with the start Mark Angel has made.

Town: Doughty, Lambley, Parker, Ashton, Wood, Jackson, Eyett (Basker), Kennedy (Battersby), Beck, Borbely (Ford), Wightwick
