The striker doubled his tally with another header after 27 minutes following great build-up play from Harry Limb and a fantastic cross from Will Langford.

Boston are finishing the season with a great run of form, particularly on their travels. Since Christmas they've won 7 and drawn one of their 8 away league fixures. Remarkably they've registered 6 clean sheets in those games.
