JASON Lee described Boston United’s Boxing Day victory over Eastwood Town as a case of getting a job done.

The hosts had to come from behind to secure victory after Pilgrims old boy Frannie Green shocked the Jakemans Stadium by netting twice for the Blue Square Bet North strugglers in the opening 11 minutes.

But United responded through Danny Sleath, Tom Ward, Marc Newsham and Lee himself.

“We got the job done, but what a frustrating start to the game,” Lee said.

“You prepare and do everything you’ve got to do and then you concede a poor first goal.

“I thought we’d just got into the game and Frannie Green scores a really good second goal.

“It wasn’t until 2-0 down we started playing how I wanted us to start the game.

“I give credit to them (the players) for sticking at it and making sure we went in all square at half time.”

Green was afforded time to turn and slide home a second-minute goal for the Badgers, before doubling his tally with a superb 20-yard volley.

But Boston pulled a goal back as Sleath drove home from the edge of the Badgers’ box.

Ward levelled before the break, heading home a Ben Milnes corner.

A neat turn and finish from Newsham put Boston in front for the first time before Lee finished things off with a 12-yard curler.

New Boston signing Leon Constantine was given the final 30 minutes, as he replaced Lee.
