It was hard work but that's a second successive clean sheet which helps lift the Poachers two places up the table to 14th.

85 mins - Poachers go close to doubling their lead but it looks like being a nailbiter right down to the final whistle

80 mins - The visitors need a response and quickly go close at the other end

GOAL! - Boston Town do finally break the deadlock thanks to a classy finish by Lee Beeson on 78 minutes

74 mins - And Cogenhoe could yet make Town pay for their missed chances - Portas pulling of a fine save to keep it scoreless

68 mins - Into the last quarter of the game - can the hosts make the most of their domination? They don't do draws these days. After drawing four of their first six games of the season, they haven't had any draws in their last 13 games 

66 mins - You start to wonder if it's going to be one of those afternoons as Beck blazes over from a good position

61 mins - A rare save by Travis Portas from a Cogenhoe free-kick - then Luke White forces a corner at the other end as he's the latest to be frustrated by the visiting keeper

53 mins - How is it still 0-0?! More chances as Cogenhoe clear another effort off the line and Bayliss's luckless afternoon in front of goal continues with his latest shot saved again
