Poachers 4, Mulbarton 2 Poachers 4, Mulbarton 2

Gary Edgley's side are through the next round of the FA Cup, where they'll face Leicester Nirvana at home on Saturday 24 August.

Luke White struck twice as Boston Town finally overcame the stubborn resistance of Mulbarton.

He pounced to put the home side ahead after 10 minutes after a good save by Mulbarton keeper Tom Wright.

The former Spalding United striker then doubled the lead after 19 minutes with another smart finish.

But memories of last week's nightmarish second half fightback by Holbeach resurfaced when the Norfolk side pulled one back soon after the interval.

The tie seemed to take a decisive turn when Ben Thompson was sent off for handling on the line and Lee Beeson converted the resulting penalty.

But even with only 10 men, Mulbarton refused to lie down and pulled it back to 3-2.

It was only when Corey Cunliffe restored the two-goal cushion after 85 minutes that the Poachers finally put the tie to bed.

Town: Portas, J Sparrow, Tate, Cartwright, Watkins, Cunliffe, Beeson, Pinner, Beck, White, Bayliss; subs used: Shipley, Ford, Potts; subs unused: Muirhead, Turki, Armond, Tunstall
