BOROUGH’S second string propelled themselves up the league with this win, leapfrogging their opponents.

It was just the confidence-boosting win they needed ahead of a string of tough games, three against teams sitting at the top of the league.

Borough weathered an early storm before Justin Adams put them ahead with a penalty.

They defended well for the rest of the half and were rewarded 10 minutes before the break by a well struck goal from Dan Frain.

it was 20 minutes into the second half before the home side got their goal when a cross was headed in after a break on the right.

Borough then shut up shop and denied the home side an equaliser to record a deserved victory.
