The home side broke the deadlock three minutes before the break, when Borough could only half clear the ball. It fell to Stuart Fleetwood, who hammered in a left-foot volley from 18 yards.

In the second half, Joe Lea went closest on 73 minutes with a shot into the side netting.

Borough then wasted a glorious chance to level in the final minute firing wide from six yards.
