Tuesday, 13 November 2007
Boston clung on to pole position in the Premier Division after edging out Sleaford with a last minute decider at Tattershall Road.
Garath Pritchard fired the Poachers ahead after just three minutes after Laszlo Lovas and Gary Bull combined but Sleaford levelled through Carl Sedlan who converted a Matt Hodgkin cross after 11 minutes and followed up with a 21st minute second from Matt Lunn, who cut in from the left flank before firing home.
Gary Bull converted a spot kick after 55 minutes following a foul by Neil Richardson on Lovas to square the contest.
Sleaford keeper Andy Scott made a superb save from a Pritchard header and a Paul Goodhand free kick grazed the bar before Jamie Shaw missed a gilt edged chance for the visitors.
Carl Sedlan's second yellow card saw Sleaford reduced to ten men and Pritchard won it for Boston in the final minute, smashing the ball home from a Lovas pull back..
