Three sent off in derby draw

A makeshift Poachers side earned their first point of the season in a tempestuous derby.

Boston fans will feel frustrated that they had enough chances to have won the game - but a draw was a satisfactory outcome given that the likes of Keegan Townrow, Loz Lambley and Simon Ashton were all sidelined.

Dennis Greene had no subs at his disposal and fielded Ollie Pinner despite the fact that the veteran utility man is awaiting an operation.

Town merited their 1-0 half-time lead - again given to them courtesy of Scott Coupland - in front of a healthy crowd of 137.

Division One champions Pinchbeck started with ex-Poachers including Fraser Bayliss in their side but were on the back foot after the sending off of Jack Smith.

However, the Knights equalised early in the second half and that proved enough to extend their unbeaten run to 30 matches stretching back to last October.

Bayliss was also sent off but the Poachers couldn't capitalise - and Pinner received his marching orders as well in the dying moments of the game.

Town: J Lambley, Walker, Pinner, Reynolds, Turki, Ford, Johnson, Harriosn, Tate, Coupland, Borbely
