But with the last action of the 1st half, the league’s top goalscorer Ed Atkinson was on hand to level things up from a corner.

The second half saw some of the best football of the season. A solid defence backed up a fierce midfield and Town began to dominate. Two quick-fire goals, including a fine piece of forward work from Jakub Supierz, put the hosts 3-1 up with 20 minutes to go.

The visitors couldn’t get a grip on the game with a fired-up Boston side winning their individual battles all over the pitch.

A late deflected effort for 3-2 gave Town a scare but the boys saw out the final minutes to secure a huge 3 points in the title race.
