Boston slam accusations of match-fixing

Boston chairman Jon Sotnick has reacted angrily to reports of a possible match-fixing investigation surrounding the club's 4-2 loss at Carlisle in March.

There have been claims the fixture could be looked into because betting markets in Asia were unusually busy before the match played on March 25.

It is alleged six-figure sums were staked on the Cumbrians, who secured the victory in the last minute with a goal from substitute Simon Hackney, winning by a two-goal margin.

'I am angry, upset and dismayed. It is quite obvious that whoever has started this rumour has a grievance against this football club,' Sotnick told Boston's official website.

'I have already instructed lawyers to investigate the matter fully and will do everything in my power to press charges against those that started this ludicrous story.

'Those who don't know me quite obviously underestimate me and I will do everything in my power to protect this football club against further untruths.

'We have worked extremely hard over the last three years to install a footballing culture and this is the last thing we expected. I will continue consulting with our lawyers until I get to the bottom of these events.'

An FA spokesman said: 'We received a letter on Friday relating to a League Two game and related betting patterns.

'We will now look at it in detail to see if there is any foundation to the letter.'
