Harrogate Town 4 Boston United 2: Pilgrims beaten despite fightback
A second half fightback was in vain as Boston United crashed to a 4-2 defeat at Harrogate Town in Blue Square Bet North last night.
Trailing 2-0 to early strikes from Tom Platt and Michael Platt, the Pilgrims looked to be heading for a heavy defeat at the CNG Stadium.
However, second half goals from Ben Milnes and Marc Newsham, his 26th of the season, saw Graham Drury's side pull level.
But the visitors' hopes of a morale-boosting victory were punctured when former Gainsborough Trinity striker Dominic Knowles slotted home a penalty in the 68th minute before Liam Elam added a fourth in added time.
The Pilgrims, who urgently need points to avoid a relegation battle, now face back-to-back home games against Vauxhall Motors on Saturday and Gloucester City next Tuesday.
