Saturday, 05 April 2008
Boston's eight match unbeaten run came to grief at Willen Road came to grief as Newport snatched a last gasp victory.
Scott Mulkern gave the Swans the lead after sixteen minutes, netting at the second attempt, but Gary Bull's 31st goal of the season hauled Boston on terms four minutes later, the veteran firing home the rebound after James Howarth saved his first shot.
Newport regained the lead with a Vinny Shrieves header from a Drew Mitten cross after 65 minutes but a Poachers response came even quicker this time with Paul Goodhand levelling within a minute with a cross shot after breaking down the right.
Boston had no answer though when Martin Kelly gave the Swans the lead for a third time two minutes into stoppage time following good work by substitutes Sam Bissue and Elliott O'Reilly.
Newport: James Howarth, Josh Bigo, Rob Lock (John Thorpe), Lee Tinsley, Mark Bone, Scott Mulkern, Martin Kelly, Richard Armstrong (Sam Bissue), Vinny Shrieves, Drew Mitten (Elliott O'Reilly), Rob Macdonald.
Boston: Bart Griemink, Neal Spafford, Matt Price, Nathan Collins, Shaun Baker, Mark Foster, Ollie Pinner (Leigh Taylor), Paul Goodhand, Gary Nimmo, Gary Bull, Mo Medine.
