Poachers 2, Quorn 1

Jez Ashberry’s verdict from the DWB Stadium

Boston Town were forced to battle it out for a hard-fought three points.

Harry Limb gave the home side the lead after 17 minutes, steering home a Lee Beeson corner with his left foot at the far post.

Luke White doubled the advantage on the half hour mark. following a long ball from Ryley Thompson which saw the Poachers break two on two. Limb held off a challenge and slipped it to White, who fired home into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

But Quorn pulled one back before the interval with a penalty, which boss Gary Edgley felt was very soft.

Quorn’s former £2 million man Luke Varney was kept relatively quiet – but the away side pressed for an equaliser late on.

Edgley brought on Rares Demeter and Patrick Kacirek and there was some last-ditch defending towards the end but the hosts held on to register an impressive fifth win in six league games so far this campaign.

Town: Portas, Dilley, Thompson, Ford, Mucklin, Tate, Beeson (Demeter), T White (Kacirek), Smith, Limb, L White
