They came from behind to win 2-1 with goals by Avelino Vieira and Lewis Webb.

Yaxley won the big local derby at home to Wisbech 4-2 after leading 4-0 at the break through strikes by Dan Cotton (2), Liam Hook and Joe Butterworth, while Deeping were 3-0 home winners against Boston Town courtesy of goals by Scott Coupland, Henry Dunn and Scott Mooney.
