Poachers 2, Eastwood 2

Boston Town were left frustrated after being held at home by Eastwood.

The visitors had plenty of possession in a disjointed first 45 minutes that saw few clear-cut chances for either side.

Lee Beeson had the best opportunity right on half-time when a loose ball fell to him on the box but his instinctive shot slid just wide.

After the break, Gary Edgley’s side began to assert themselves far more with a stiff breeze behind them.

So it was against the run of play when Eastwood took the lead after 54 minutes.

Six minutes later, the hosts were level courtesy of a towering Richard Ford header from a Lee Beeson corner.

And after 67 minutes, the Poachers took the lead with their best move of the afternoon. Neat interplay between Kuwsi Ofushine and Luke White carved open some space on the right and White’s pinpoint cross was bundled in from close range by Harry Limb.

At that point you would have expected Boston to run out comfortable winners – but Eastwood made it 2-2 within a couple of minutes after some sloppy defending.

The Poachers then laid siege to the visitors’ goal for large periods but were unable to grab a winner as tempers frayed.

Edgley was particularly angered when referee Nick Elliott didn’t give a penalty for an apparent foul on Ford as he was about to unleash another header towards goal. In fact, Ford himself was so incensed that he was sin-binned for the remainder of the game for arguing with the decision.

Town: Portas, Dilley, Thompson, Ofushine, Ford, Mucklin, Beeson (Syllla), Bayliss (Waite), Reynolds, Limb, L White: unused subs: Borbely, T White
