One time Boston loanee Andy White returned to York Street to haunt his old pals.

The bustling striker bagged Notts County's late winner a goal which also shattered Boston United's unbeaten home record and helped the Magpies avenge an earlier loss in the reverse fixture.

It was the visitors who were quickest out of the blocks with a breakthrough goal on seven minutes when Glynn Hurst got on the end of an Andy White cross to tap in from close range.

Boston hit back with a flurry of attacks and a series of corners which led to an Alan White shot being blocked and a looping long range effort by Chris Holland drifting into the arms of keeper Kevin Pilkington.

County remained composed on the ball and still looked to take the game from Boston on the break, one of the best moments seeing David Pipe shoot just wide from 25 yards on 23 minutes.

Boston pressed again and Simon Rusk had Pilkington at full stretch to save a header from a Julian Joachim cross. Moments later Mark Greaves headed wide from a Brad Maylett corner.

Just before the break both sides had further chances, Andy White glancing a header wide for County and Joachim and Maylett both testing Pilkington at the other end with forceful shots.

It took Boston only four minutes of the second half to draw level with Jason Lee heading in from a Rusk cross after a sweeping attack. Moments later Ben Futcher advanced and fired in a 25 yard drive which flew inches wide.

County came back with some decent attacking moves, particularly with Hurst at the heart of most of their best work. But Boston managed to hold firm.

There was however an anxious moment for home fans in the 75th minute when Pipe again tried his luck from distance, his shot skimming inches too high.

In the 79th minute Boston also went close when Rusk saw a low drive flash past the post.

But in the 82nd minute, County went ahead when Andy White got on the end of a curling free kick by Rob Ullathorne, the ball glancing in off the striker's thigh.
