Boston Town boss Ian Dunn gave his side the thumbs up - after the Poachers won their first league clash of the season.

After three draws and three defeats, Town finally got that first tick in the win column following Saturday’s 5-1 victory at home to Harborough Town.

Jordan Nuttell and Josh Ford both scored braces, with Ford converting one of his goals from the penalty spot.

Lori Borbely also got on the scoresheet.

“It’s been coming - but it was a long overdue league win that we’ve been craving and have probably been unlucky not to get before today,” Dunn told The Standard.

“With three more games to come at home in the next 14 days, I hope we can kick on and move up the table.

“It was pleasing to see both strikers get two goals apiece.

“They’ve been working hard in the last few games with little reward.”

Harborough sit bottom of the UCL Premier, without a win from six matches.

But that won’t bother the Poachers, who moved up three places to 15th following their victory at Tattershall Road.

They now host Holbeach United on Tuesday (KO 7.45pm).
