Boston Town earned a hard-fought point at UCL Premier leaders Deeping Rangers last night.

Prior to kick off, Tuncay Korkmaz’s side had won nine of their 10 league matches - including Saturday’s 8-1 thrashing of Desborough.

And when Ryan Oliver headed the hosts in front early on, his 12th of the season, the 16th-placed Poachers could have feared the worst.

However, a string of stops from keeper Ricky Drury - complemented by a block from ex-Deeping full back Loz Lambley - meant Town still had hope.

And they drew level in the 65th minute when striker Josh Ford netted to earn a share of the spoils.

The match wasn’t all one-way traffic, with Deeping stopper James Doughty also making some fine stops, as well as Poachers player-manager Ian Dunn rattling the woodwork with a header.
