Ian Dunn was again left cursing chances that went begging as Boston Town suffered a 4-0 defeat against Holbeach United last night.

The Poachers boss could not believe his side’s luck yet again, after twice rattling the Tigers’ crossbar.

“Need to learn take our chances,” Dunn wrote on his Twitter account this morning.

“We were well into the game for the first hour then the ref gift-wrapped their first goal.”

Town were left fuming after Tommy Treacher’s opener after the break, feeling he had fouled Ollie Pinner in the build-up.

Mitchell Griffiths then added a brace.

His first was struck beyond Tom Roberts after being given too much space at the back post.

The second was a penalty, after Jason Turner was adjudged to have been pulled back on the edge of the area.

“We made it too easy for them to get a second and kill game the game off,” Dunn added.

“The ref sent them another early Christmas gift for the third.”

The fourth goal was a firm header from Jonny Allen.

However, Dunn conceded defeat, adding: “Credit to John Chand and his boys, they took their chances when they got them.

“Something we can’t seem to do at the moment.”
