Late heartbreak for United

12 January 2009

Monday, 9.10am

BOSTON United succumbed to their ninth home league defeat of the campaign as FC Unnited of Manchester's Kyle Wilson slotted home an 85th-minute winner.

The Pilgrims looked as if they had earned themselves a point from this fixture, but Ryan Clarke's wayward cross-field pass allowed to visitors to snatch victory at the death.

Boston had previously seen efforts from Wes Parker and Stewart Talbot blocked on the goal-line.

The game, however, was blighted by a 20-man brawl - sparked by an altercation between Ollie Ryan and his FC United opponent Adam Carden.
