PAUL Hurst says his Boston United team should be proud of their performance as they earned a hard-fought draw against Solihull Moors last night.

The Pilgrims came from a goal down to grab a point courtesy of Danny Davidson’s leveller.

And even when influential centre back Kevin Austin was forced off with a face injury, it was the 10 men of Boston who looked the hungrier for the three points.

“The lads can all be proud of the way they played,” Hurst told The Standard.

“I think maybe overall it was probably a fair result, but at the end of the day we’re down to 10 men and they’re the ones whose keeper is playing for time.

“Maybe they missed a trick, maybe they didn’t realise that we were a man down.

“It just shows how happy they were with a point.

“But over the balance of play it was a fair result.”
