As you've probably guessed, there have been a few technical hitches during the first-half so I will bring you up to speed.
Boston have had the better of things so far and missed a penalty in the 24th minute with Jose Veiga saving from Marc Newsham after Ricky Miller had been fouled by Richard Munday.
City centre-half Graham Hutchison also went off injured moments before the spot-kick was taken and was replaced by Ashley Walker.
The hosts however took the lead just a minute later through Newsham following a fine cross field pass from Conor Marshall.
Worcester levelled six minutes before the break and it was against the run of play.
Home keeper Ashley Timms threw the ball out to Peter Bore but the right-back was dispossessed by Luke Hubbins and he squared the ball to provide Daniel Nti with a tap in.
The main team news for Worcester City is a return for Luke Hubbins instead of Ashley Sammons.
Shabir Khan is not in the squad ahead of his three match ban, which starts on Tuesday.
