The Harriers travelled to the East Coast for a game at struggling Boston and came back empty handed. This set back in their quest for the 2nd Division came after a good win at Exeter during midweek. Ian Britton
decided to go with an unchanged side.
We started promisingly enough when Sam Shiltons cross was fired straight at the Boston keeper by a defender. The rebound fell for Drewe Broughton who was unable to react quickly enough.
Adie Smith came to our rescue minutes later when he managed to block a shot from the impressive Richard Logan but luckily the resulting corner was wasted.
At the other end our first corner gave Dion Scott a chance to score but his flicked header was off target. We threatened to score again when Sean Flynn blocked a Boston clearance. The ball fell again for Broughton and he touched the ball on for Bo Henriksen but Bo fired wide from the edge of the box.
The early exchanges were all Harriers but that was about to change because Boston suddenly scored on the break.
Boston's top scorer Logan put them ahead on 24 minutes with a low finish from just inside the box after Craig Hinton's clearance had come back off Duffield and the striker made no mistake in slotting it past Fraser Digby.
Boston piled the pressure on then and we had no real answer to it. First the ex Walsall midfielder Tom Bennett drilled a ball across the face of the goal, then he went close again with a 25yd free kick that just went over the bar.
Harriers went further behind just before half-time when Duffield's flick for Weatherstone set him up to unleash a half-volley that went in off the underside of the bar.
Boston still had chances in the added time when Digby did well to keep out a Liam George shot and see Logan's rebound shot charged down by the Harriers shaky defence.
