Boston beat Huddersfield 2-1 at home in the first round of the LDV Vans Trophy.Boston United secured a 2-1 win at home to Huddersfield Town in the first round of the LDV Vans Trophy.
The League Two outfit advanced beyond the first round as goals from Alan White and Bradley Maylett saw off The Terriers.
The hosts exerted the early pressure with Julian Joachim shooting wide and Ben Futcher heading over the bar.
The breakthrough came for The Pilgrims on 28 minutes when White's shot found its way into the net.
Huddersfield then came to life with Pawel Abbott having a shot saved before David Mirfin drew the visitors level on 68 minutes.
Parity lasted for just six minutes, however, as Maylett's drive was enough to send Boston through to the next round.
