Jack Wightwick grabbed a hat-trick as Boston Town came from behind to beat Peterborough Northern Star 3-2 last night.

Jacob Joyce handed the hosts a fifth-minute lead.

But the Poachers - who had been beaten 5-0 at Cogenhoe on Saturday and 6-1 at Deeping Rangers in the FA Cup the previous week - proved they are made of sterner stuff.

Wightwick’s treble ensured Mark Angel’s side made it three wins out of four matches in the UCL Premier, despite Joyce causing a few late anxious moments as he reduced the arrears in the 84th minute.
