That was Belper's only real chance of the game, but Boston couldn't make their dominance count as the hosts' keeper Alfie Roberts pulled off several impressive saves.

As Jason Field also went off injured it looked like it might be a frustrating afternoon for the visitors.

But 11 minutes from the end, Bayliss finally grabbed the goal his side deserved, shooting powerfully home after a spell of pinball in the box.

The win means Boston climb to 11th in the United Counties League Premier North table.
