The games a bit feisty according to radio Lincs.  Hopefully the lads won't fall for the spoiling tactics and stay cool  8)

Last 2 games we have just missed out on getting all 3 points.  Is it a fitness problem?
United we stand..................

7 points from our last 8 games.

Is that return good enough, I think not

Were you there? One of the best displays all season against a bunch of thugs. It's so called fans like you we can well do without if you are not going to get behind the team.  UTP.

Oxo, pleased you think the teams better off without me. I have sponsored games, supported the club since the early seventies and attended hundreds if not a couple of thousand of games. Cold nights at Frickly, Barrow, Workington and other hell holes, don’t make it personal I was only asking is 7 points from 8 games is good enough. If you think it is ok, your welcome to your opinion but mine is it isn’t.

I think you have made an error ,  I make it 7 points in our last 9 league games .
On this return for the rest of the season we would finish the season with 46 points.

Last season Gainsborough were relegated with 46 points .
Season 15/16  Lowestoft were relegated with  46 points .

Season  11/12  Hinckley was relegated with 48 points

Is it good enough ?   maybe not !
In 3 of the last 6 seasons 46 points has  meant releligation .

What a blooming good show today from the boys, cracking effort.
First time l have watched Boston play in 10 years, been in away working in Poland.
2 games unbeaten on a run now.

Oh well if that's your attitude towards a fellow fan I think I'll donate my jam jar to the Heart Foundation..... Pathetic 😢

After the BPA game I started my post with a comment about holding on, well guess what, same again. We'd done enough to win the game, had a second wrongly disallowed for offside when Walker ran onto the ball from behind the original pass, and then sadly we've succumbed to a very late equaliser again, resulting in 2 points from 9 over the festive period. The performance today deserved better, as did the BPA game in my opinion, but the bottom line is 2 draws, not 2 wins. Anything but a win vs Alty on Saturday, and the possible gap between us and the playoffs could start to look like a fairly sizeable one. Let's hope we can gain a 2-0 lead and give ourselves a safety net! Having said that, I believe we still have the third tightest defence in the division, which I remarkable given the recent results (1 win in the last 9 in the league). One big plus for me is Jay Rollins again today. Okay, so he's only 60-70 minutes fit, but he's creating things up front and making chances for others, something which has been lacking from many of the other forwards we've tried this season. It's a real bonus to have him back at last. Anyway, I'm disappointed but not disheartened, the performances are on the up, so my rose tinted glasses still have hope.

Yes I agree it's great to see Jay back...... And let's not forget who brought him to the club 😉😉😉

I agree a very good effort against a very tough team.
Just lost out in the end, enjoyed the game.

I see fans are split again, as they have been over the last three odd years. So much toxicity around, is there any wonder on and off the pitch we are slowly crumbling. Even though illness have kept me away for two seasons I am really starting to believe I am not missing it as much as I should. Hard to swallow when this is my team.
