Boston Town inflicted county rivals Holbeach United’s second defeat of the UCL Premier season upon them last night.

Goals from Jack Wightwick and Simon Ashton saw the Poachers get the better of the Tigers at Carter’s Park, United’s first defeat in the league since the opening day of the campaign.

Mark Angel’s side - who also beat the Tigers 5-0 in the county cup - took the lead through Wightwick’s 25-yard chip, his 13th goal of the campaign.

Town went 2-0 up on the hour when Ashton forced home following a move including Aaron Eyett and Richard Ford.

Gary King gave Holbeach hope in the 70th minute, but Town stood firm.

Ex-Poacher Ollie Pinner was sent off late on.

TOWN: Doughty, Lambley (Borbely), Field, Fleming (Parnell), Wood, S. Ashton, Eyett, Ford, Beck, Nuttell (Moore-Papworth), Wightwick.
