Sports returned to the top of the table with a hard-fought 1-0 win at Sleaford on Wednesday (September 14) courtesy of a Mark Jones goal.

Sports have won six of their seven Premier Division games this season. Pagnell have won fibe of eight. Sports are currently a point clear at the top, but third-placed Holbeach are just two points behind with a game in hand.

Holbeach are one of two top-flight teams (Sileby Ranagers are the others) to have avoided a Premier Division defeat this season.

The Tigers beat Huntingdon 5-4 in a humdinger of a contest on Wednesday. They host lowly Oadby at Carter’s Park tomorrow.

Yaxley will try and end Sileby’s unbeaten record tomorrow, when mid-table Peterborough Northern Star attempt to complete a quick double over Leicester Nirvana. Star are away from home.

Whittlesey Athletic are the best-placed local team in Division One. They are 11th and take on the team just above them, Potton United, at Feldale Field tomorrow.
