JOSH Ford grabbed an equaliser with 30 seconds left to earn Boston Town a share of the spoils at Cogenhoe.

But despite the Poachers’ late heroics at Compton Park, Boston Town boss Ian Dunn said his side felt like they had lost the fixture.

“In the dressing room the atmosphere was like we’d dropped points,” Dunn said.

“We felt like we’d lost the match.

“We’d defended well and wasted so many chances that we didn’t really know what to do.

“We could have won it 9-2.”

Ben Foster put the Cooks ahead in the 18th minute, only for summer signing Luke Toner to level just before the break.

After the interval, the Poachers began turning the screw and soon led 3-1.

Toner added his second of the game to put Boston 2-1 ahead.

This was swiftly followed by Simon Mowbray forcing home his first for the Poachers since his signing last Monday.

But then the unthinkable happened.

Town went from cruising... to losing.

Two quickfire finishes saw Cogenhoe pull level, courtesy of Darren Frost’s double strike only minutes apart.

And then Lewis Leslie found the net in the 89th minute, seemingly sealing the Poachers’ fate.

However, at the death Josh Ford found the net to somehow salvage a point.

According to Dunn, it was the least his side deserved.

“We wasted so many chances and kept carving them open,” he added.

“Their fourth goal was the first time we felt they had really done that to them.

“We gave them a few goals.

“But we got a point and it was better we did that than lose the game.”
