JASON Lee is backing his Boston United side to come good following Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Hyde.

The Pilgrims twice led through Lee Canoville’s header and Anthony Church’s penalty, but a strike from Kevin Holsgrove and Andrew Smart’s spot kick earned the Blue Square Bet strugglers a share of the spoils.

Hyde’s Callum Byrne saw red in the 27th minute after a foul on Jamie Yates which led to the Pilgrims’ penalty.

However, United stopper Paul Bastock escaped the same fate when he hauled down Matty Barlow in the box in the second half, Canoville’s presence near the goalline being his saving grace.

“The lads are very disappointed, and they should be,” said Lee.

“We didn’t look like we were going to get loads of goals and i’s not always easy against 10 men, they sat behind the ball.

“The second half frustrated me as we didn’t really get at them.”

However, Lee continued by looking at the positives.

He said: “I’m not too down as we didn’t lose.

“The boys have not done anything I’ve been disappointed with since we’ve been here and we haven’t lost either.

“Their first goals was a little bit spawny. The second one we gave them the penalty.”
