Mark Angel believes that football fans are missing out on some entertaining action at the DWB Stadium.

The Poachers boss is adamant that contests in the UCL Premier remains as competitive as ever.

“We don’t always get as many fans in as the lads deserve. The standard of football is good,” said Angel, the former West Brom winger who won the Conference with Boston United in 2002.

“As more players come in from abroad, good players get pushed down the divisions.

“The standard at Boston United now is probably what it was like in the Conference or maybe higher a few years ago.

“And that means good players are playing in this division.

“We’ve got good, young hungry players who score a lot of goals and are good to watch.”

The Poachers put their frustrating festive period behind them with a 1-0 home victory against Harborough Town on Saturday.

Bees defender Callam Traynor diverted a cross into his own net in the 19th minute to settle the contest, after finding himself under pressure from Ryan Parnell.

Although Town remain in 17th place in the standings, they have moved to within a point of 15th-placed Harborough, with two games in hand.

The victory saw Boston earn their first clean sheet in the league this season - their only previous shut-out being in their 5-0 county cup win over Holbeach.

The last time the Poachers recorded a clean sheet in a league game was in a 1-0 win against Cogenhoe in March.

Town will now travel to face seventh-placed Eynesbury Rovers on Saturday (KO 3pm).

Simon Ashton will miss the trip through suspension.
