Gary Frost says he’ll be ‘sleeping better’ after Aaron Eyett’s superb double saw Boston Town shock highflying Eynesbury Rovers and give their survival hopes a massive boost.
Jordan Brown’s ninth-minute strike gave Rovers an early lead in Saturday’s United Counties League Premier Division clash.
But a double from Eyett, who recently returned to the DWB Stadium, turned the game on its head and moved the Poachers seven points clear of Harrowby United, who sit in the second relegation place.
“I’m not taking anything for granted and won’t say we’re safe, I wouldn’t say that unless it was mathematically impossible for them to catch us,” Frost admitted.
“But I’ll be sleeping better this week.
“We lived a charmed life early on, we weren’t really in it for the first 20 minutes or so.
“But we’ll take the three points, it was a better performance.”
Eyett nodded Town level before unleashing a late matchwinning thunderbolt.
Thirty yards from goal and, from a tight angle, he completed the shock turnaround.
“His first goal was, believe it or not, a header,” Frost said.
“It was a pinpoint cross from Jordan Nuttell. It was surreal, it would normally be the other way round, but Aaron put it away.
“His second was special, 30 yards from goal and in the top corner.
“Me and Lori (Borbely, assistant manager) were behind him as he hit it and we could see how sweet it was.
“It was like an arrow and Lori was on the pitch celebrating before it had even hit the net.”
Brown saw red for the hosts in a game where Town were without Jordan Tate and Michael Hardy.
Town return to action at mid-table Harborough Town on Saturday (KO 3pm).
