Sports moved back to the top of Division One Central in the Southern League with a 1-0 win at Thame United on Tuesday thanks to centre-back Paul Malone’s 15th goal of the season.

The city side are a point ahead of title rivals Bromsgrove Sporting and they have a game in hand. Sports have now kept 15 clean sheets this season ahead of tricky trips to mid-table AFC Dunstable tomorrow (January 30) and Welwyn Garden City on Tuesday (April 2).

Yaxley boosted their survival hopes with a 4-2 win over AFC Dunstable last weekend, but they have a big game at next-to-bottom Aylesbury tomorrow.

Spalding and Wisbech are just outside the relegation zone in the East Premier Division of the Northern League.

Wisbech have a huge game tomorfrowy when hosting fellow strugglers AFC Mansfield, while Spalding are at home to high-flying Ossett Town.

Stamford AFC are stuck in mid-table ahead of a home date with Marske United.

Deeping Rangers take their outside hopes of a United Counties Premier Division title to Leicester Nirvana tomorrow. Second-placed Deeping are nine points behind leaders Daventry, but have a game in hand.
