Boston United survived a Chester FC fightback to record a pulsating 3-2 victory at the Jakemans Stadium.
After an amazing first half, the Pilgrims led 3-0 at the break against a side that went into the game with seven wins out of seven in Blue Square Bet North.
Ben Fairclough scored the first two before Ben Milnes made it three to send the home fans wild.
However, those supporters were biting their nails three minutes into the second half when substitue Iain Howard struck twice inside 60 seconds.
But Boston composed themselves after that shock and could have stretched their lead in the closing stages.
After four minutes of added time, the home side eventually held on to record their second straight victory.
