Two late goals saw Boston Town beaten by Eynesbury Rovers yesterday.

The Poachers were 2-1 ahead with six minutes to go, only to see the contest turned on its head and the hosts still looking for their first UCL Premier points.

Fraser Bayliss put Town in front in the 31st minute, finishing off a move involving Alex Beck and Jack Wightwick.

A 73rd-minute long-ranger levelled things up, but Wightwick restored Boston’s lead in the 79th minute, firing home a free kick on the edge of the Rovers penalty area.

But two late sucker punches cost Nathan Collins’ side dear.

In the 84th minute keeper Jack Pearson missed a punch, allowing the away side to level again.

Two minutes later the stopper could only parry a long-ranger, the rebound being forced home to settle the contest.

Town now host Peterborough Northern Star at the DWB Stadium on Wednesday (KO 7.45pm).
