FC UNITED boss Karl Marginson saluted ace marksman Kyle Wilson after his 24th goal of the season had secured the rebel Reds another three precious points towards their planned promotion assault.

Wilson struck five minutes from time after seizing on a defensive blunder to give United a hugely satisfying 1-0 win at Boston on a day when senior non-League was again hit hard the freezing conditions, with all but a handful of fixtures being postponed.

It was a sweet triumph for Marginson's men as it avenges home defeats by the Lincolnshire side in both the league and FA Trophy.

And, while it wasn't enough to move the visitors up from 11th in the UniBond premier division, victory at York Street means FC are now just four points short of a play-off place and set fair to challenge for a fourth successive promotion.

Marginson said: "It was a tough game and there weren't many clear-cut chances, but Kyle showed you only need one sometimes.

"He brings a lot to our team and results like this when hardly anyone else played really help our push for the play-offs."
