A LATE LATE goal from Andy Todd gave Stanley their second league win on the spin and moved them up to 13th place in the table.
The wideman thumped the ball home with just seconds to spare for his first ever league goal.
Boston were protesting Todd was off-side but the goal stood and the win puts them in good mood for their trip to premiership Watford in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night.
But manager John Coleman was disappointed with the Reds overall performance as they failed to build on their 1-0 lead.
Gary Roberts had put Stanley ahead in the 11th minute for his sixth goal of the season but David farrell equalised for Boston four minutes after the break.
It looked like the game would end in a draw until Todd became the Stanley hero.
"We kept going until the end and didn't settle for a point but we were poor in the second half," said Coleman.
"But, if you keep putting balls into the box, you will eventually score and it worked for us.
"It was worth risking a point to get all three."
