BRAD­FORD Park Av­enue boosted their sur­vival hopes with a dra­matic vic­tory at fel­low strug­glers Worces­ter City.

Nick Boshell was the hero for third-from-bot­tom Av­enue, fir­ing home the win­ner in the sixth minute of stop­page time.

The re­sult was a ham­mer blow for 17th-placed City, who sit two points above the drop zone and had chances to come out on top in a turgid af­fair.

Lee Hughes sent an early chance wide for the hosts be­fore Ebby Nel­son-Addy failed to turn home Cieron Keane’s cross on 15 min­utes.

The vis­i­tors did all the press­ing in the open­ing pe­riod but Ethan Ross went largely un­trou­bled as Shane Kil­lock twice headed wide from cor­ners.

Av­enue stop­per Jon Worsnop also had lit­tle to do, but pro­duced a stun­ning save on 66 min­utes when he tipped Hughes’ close-range header onto the post.

As the match drew to a close, Worces­ter were digging in and ap­peared to be do­ing enough to hang on for a point as Keane stopped the ball on the line af­ter a goal­mouth scrab­ble.

But with al­most the last kick of the game, Boshell hit the back of the net from 15 yards af­ter Ross’ poor punch to seal the win. STAR MAN: Wayne Brooksby (Brad­ford Park Av­enue) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
