DREWE Broughton broke Stanley's hearts once again in their relegation battle at the Staffsmart Stadium.
Tall striker Broughton had scored the first league goal against the Reds when playing for Chester in League Two's curtain raiser in August.
But his latest goal against Stanley inflicted greater damage as it left John Coleman's side rooted in the bottom three.
Both sides failed to get going in this relegation battle and, despite both having the leakiest defences in the league, it always seemed one goal would settle it.
That came when Jason Kennedy was allowed time and space on the left wing to play in the perfect cross which Broughton easily tapped over the line in the 72nd minute.
Stanley's best chance fell to Andy Todd in the first half which produced a good save from Boston keeper Andy Marriott.
"It was a scrappy game as you would expect with both sides fighting for their lives," said Coleman. "They scored with a simple tap in which they will think is a good goal but it was a horrendous goal from our point of view.
"We can't keep defending like that - we defend well for 90 minutes and then one lapse has cost us. It is not good enough and if we keep doing it, I will have to bring better players in."
New signing Alan Rogers was on the bench.
