Gloucester City 1 Boston United 3: Match report
Boston United came from behind to record their second away win of the season in Skrill North with a professional display at Gloucester City.
Tyler Weir gave the home side the lead after just three minutes from the penalty spot after keeper Ashley Timms was adjudged to have brought down Tom Webb.
But after a slugglish start, Boston regained their composure and bossed the remainder of the match.
Ian Ross – in his 100th game for the Pilgrims – hauled the visitors levels 11 minutes before half-time when he crashed home his 14th goal for the club from 25 yards.

Manager Dennis Greene made a change at half-time as Spencer Weir-Daley, who wasn’t fit enough to start, replaced young midfielder Michael Clunan. The switch saw Stefan Galinski move from right-back into midfield and Peter Bore, who started the game up front, revert to right-back.
The Pilgrims continued to dominate after the break and they took the lead for the first time when Carl Piergianni headed home a Ross corner six minutes into the second period.
Six minutes later, United doubled their advantage when another Ross corner was headed in by Piergianni’s centre-back partner Scott Garner.
“The performance was a mixed bag," said Greene. "For the first half an hour Gloucester caused us a lot of problems. I was praying for half-time so I could make some changes.
“But Rossy got a goal out nothing which knocked the stuffing out of them. We then finished the first half really strongly.
“We made the change at half-time and I thought the second half performance was very good. We got a couple of goals and could have got a few more.”
