Coates won 4-0 at bottom club Crowland thanks to goals from Daniel French, Kevin Gilbert, Matt Heron and Dan Drane.
Third-placed Netherton lost more ground after drawing 1-1 at Pinchbeck United. Top scorer Ben Cullen was back at the city club for the weekend (he’s now serving in the armed forces) and scored, but Ollie Maltby replied for the home side. Maltby was then sent off in the last minute for dissent.

Sawtry were also 5-1 winners over Uppingham, while Langtoft came from behind to beat neighbours Deeping Rangers 3-1 with goals from Dan Evans, Calum Parker and Jobi Froud.
In-form Moulton Harrox won 4-1 at out-of-form Thorney.
