Brackley Town 1 Boston United 0: Half-time report
A howler from Boston United goalkeeper Ashley Timms has gifted Brackley Town the lead in their FA Cup third qualifying clash at St James Park.
Glenn Walker’s shot two minutes before half-time was straight at Timms, who embarrassingly allowed the ball to squirm through his grasp and into the net.
The home side perhaps deserved their lead after carving out the better chances in the opening 45 minutes. Gary Mulligan headed inches wide for the Saints while a Brett Solkhon header was kept out by an excellent save from Timms minutes before his costly error.
Boston have created no more than half-chances with weak efforts from Ricky Miller and Jake Hall being easily held by home keeper Billy Turley.
Timms; Galinski, Garner, Piergianni, Sansara; Milnes, Marshall, Hall; Fairclough, Miller, Newsham.
