Ben Davison, Daniel Brooks (penalty) and Jonny Lockie scored for Spalding who were 1-0 down early on, but 3-1 up before their hosts slotted a last-minute penalty. The Tulips are now 12th, one place and one point ahead of Sports.

The city side beat Sheffield with goals from Josh Moreman, Mark Jones and Lewis Hilliard i front of a crowd of 162.

Promotion-chasing Stamford AFC attracted 306 to the Zeeco Stadium and they maintained their play-off hopes despite dropping points in a 1-1 draw with Loughborough Dynamo. Brad Wells supplied the second-half equaliser.

The Daniels are fifth with a six-point buffer to those outside the play-off places with just three games to go.
