BOSTON Town suffered a derby defeat to Deeping Rangers.

The Poachers took the lead and also saw a penalty saved as they couldn’t prevent the hosts extending their unbeaten run to 15 matches.

Lorand Borbely gave Town a dream start as he found the net with a dipping drive in the first minute, scoring against his former club.

And it looked like Boston could double their advantage when Borbely was brought down in the penalty area by ex-Town stopper James Doughty.

The Poachers believed the keeper should have received his marching orders, but he was handed a yellow card.

Still on the pitch, Doughty pulled off a fine save from 12 yards to deny Boston forward Gary Bull - the second time he has done so this season.

Doughty’s save seemed to spur Deeping on, and Ciaron Holt levelled the scores with a 20-Yard strike four minutes before the hour mark.

Recent recruit Ash Stevens won the points for Deeping after 75 minutes, collecting a long clearance and holding off a defender to hook the ball into the net.

On Saturday, Town are at home to Long Buckby (KO 3pm),

On Tuesday, they play there last home game of the season against Peterborough Northern Star (KO 7.45pm).
