AFC Telford United 2-1 Boston United

Boston United returned from the New Bucks Head empty-handed on Saturday after succumbing to Anthony Dwyer's wonder strike on the stroke of half-time.

Hosts AFC Telford United had led courtesy of Shane Sutton's 29th minute strike and despite the same player inadvertently putting through his own net five minutes before the break, the Bucks prevailed courtesy of Dwyer's long-range stunner.

The result extended the Pilgrims' winless run away from home in Vanarama National League North.

It was a quiet opening in Shropshire, with both sides struggling to create clear-cut chances and in truth there was nothing noteworthy until Telford edged ahead.

Ryan Wilson delivered a deep corner from the Telford right and SUTTON arrived at the back post to guide the ball past George Willis after shrugging off Brad McGowan.

John Marsden had an effort from distance which swerved off target at the last moment before the visitors equalised when Jack Thomas’ cross from the right was headed into his own net by SUTTON.

The Pilgrims thought they were going to reach the interval all-square but DWYER had other ideas after seizing upon a loose ball in midfield and depositing a fantastic effort beyond Willis’ grasp from fully 30 yards.

The visitors’ anticipated onslaught after the break struggled to gather momentum and it was Telford who went close again with Sutton rattling the crossbar and Willis saving well to deny Marsden.

Substitute Gregg Smith had a header drop wide following a long Willis free-kick but United found opportunities hard to come by as the points slipped through their grasp.
