all the action from the Bescot Stadium - LIVE(ish) with Adam Hildred
From bad to worse?
That's yer' lot - Good point for Boston today (maybe I'm a lucky touch?), not particularly helpful in terms of moving up the table, but as long as the team managed to hover above the bototm two places, we just have to rely on the club's financial situation holding out long enoiugh for... anything to improve it. Tar, Adam.
Interview time! As usual, a player, Andy Marriott this time, has "held his hand up" to accept the blame for Walsall's goal. Hmm. Walsall only had one chance in the second half, while Boston apparently played some flowing football (although Scott Dalton choses to play along with this and agree). His Lordship informs us that Ellender received a couple of stitches, before going on to mention something about financial survival and other unimportant things.
Other results - Chester 1, Mansfield 1; Rochdale 5, MK Dons 0; Darlington 1, Wrexham 1; and of course, Torquay hilariously thrashed Grimsby 4-1 last night. ALl in all, it puts us 19th - a point ahead of Accrington Stanley, but 17 goalsworth behind Rochdale, with Macclesfield a further three points ahead with a by far superior goal difference.
Peep peep, peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep! Walsall 1, Boston 1. Boston grab a deserved point, and, according to Paul Raynor, people up and down the country will be "praising Boston United for picking up a good result at Walsall." Whistle has gone at Sincil Bank as well, with Lincoln beating Peteborough 1-0.
90+1 mins - We head into the first of three stoppage time minutes...
86 mins - Flipping hell! Scott Dalton nearly breaks my radio screaming about what a great save Andy Marriott just made. YET ANOTHER corner for Walsalll comes to nothing.
Big match update #3 - Grantham Town 1, Ocid Town 2 as the Gingerbreads put themselves in with a chane.
82 mins - CHANCE - Ellender just manages to get rid of the cross.
Thought - Wonderful thing, this e-mail, isn't it? (HINT!)
80 mins - From what Chris Cookdescribe as "40 or 45 yards", Jason Kennedy goes very close with a long range effort.
79 mins - Jamie Clarke totally fails with an attempt from a free-kick.
78 mins - Some guy with a really long name comes on for Walsall.
76 mins - Green comes on for Richards, and goes close with his first touch, somehow hurting himself in doing so.
72 mins - First caution of the afternoon as Mark Greaves accumulates one. Lincoln 1-0 up agaisnt Peteborough.
70 mins - A mummified Paul Ellender comes back on to the pitch while Butler cracks another one over thebar.
68 mins - Yet another corner for Walsall
that comes to nothing. Ellender is still off and
Boston are with ten men.
49 mins - Sounds like Walsall are putting the pressure on. Nicholson clears. Twice. Another corner for Walsall, which comes to nothing.
Here we go again - Will natural order be restored this half? Will Drewe Broughton get sent off? How much, in pounds, will the club's debts increase by in interest this half? Answers to (most of) these questions coming up.
Big match update #2 - Gainsborough Trinity 0, Mooregreen 0. Oh yeah, and Grantham are actually 2-0 down, rather than 2-0 up.
Half time entertainment - Fly Swatter, which tells me my 43 swats to kill ten flies in 47 seconds is "sucky", and, for Christ's sake, e-mail in something. High scores, hatemail, ANYTHING!
Attack! Attack! Attack, attack, attack!
Corner to Boston, some ping ponging of the ball, before the half-time
whistle goes. Yet more whistles and boos from the Walsall supporters
(in the region of 8000 apparently).
