Liam Tunstall netted against his old club but it wasn't enough to prevent a disappointing Boxing Day derby defeat.

The Poachers played plenty of decent football and created some great chances - but again they were not clinical enough in front of goal and were punished again as the visitors took their chances.


Brad Hockin gave Sleaford a 1-0 interval lead and George Couzens doubled that advantage early in the second half before Tunstall pulled one back soon afterwards.

But as both sides went all out, it was Couzens who snatched two more goals late on to complete his hat-trick.

New signings Jordan Smith and Kofi Ross both came into the starting XI but there was no Christmas cheer for Poachers boss Gary Edgley as his side suffered a sixth successive defeat.

The only good news for Boston was that Whitworth, Rothwell, Chenecks and Muxloe also lost.

Town: Portas, Cunliffe, Tate, Moulds, Ross, Pinner, Horton, Chipamaunga, Tunstall, Fenton, Smith; subs: Nichols, Holland, Potts
