JASON Lee was full of praise for his Boston United side as they earned him his first victory as Pilgrims boss.

Shaun Pearson headed the only goal of the game on 54 minutes, from jamie Yates’ corner, as United overcame Worcester City at York Street.

Pearson was also involved in the game’s other talking point, which saw Worcester’s Marc McGregor red-carded in the first half for a stamp on the defender’s foot.

“I’m very pleased with the performance,” said Lee, whose side saw numerous chances going begging.

“I don’t think the scoreline did us credit. Ryan Semple was outstanding, he put a lot of good balls into the box.

“It was a frustrating day for Spencer Weir-Daley as well, the overhead kick went wide and he had a few headers.

“But I’m delighted overall.

“In a game like that you’ve got to keep going. I expressedto them at half time how important it was that we went at them with tempo.

“They were a man down and were going to try to slow the game down. But we did keep going.

“I don’t think they offered much and Bazza (Paul Bastock) didn’t have a save to make at all.”
