Peterborough Sports are now just three points off the bottom of Division One South of the Evo Stik League after a heartbreaking 3-2 home defeat at the hands of Lincoln United today (December 23).

Sports led 2-1 going into injury time at PSL, but Lincoln substitutes Ryan Oliver and Jack Wightwick both scored to give the visitors an unlikely three points.

Bottom club Romulus were 2-0 winners at Market Drayton Town to move to within a win of 19th-placed Sports.

Lincoln had taken the lead with a soft goal 10 minutes into the second-half, but two goals in six minutes from Adrian Mizia and Mark Jones had put Sports 2-1 up with 20 minutes to go. It was a debut goal for substitute Mizia before Jones headed home Ashley Robinson’s long throw in front of a crowd of 156.

Sports are at Spalding United on Boxing Day and could fancy their chances as the Tulips are in freefall. They went down 3-1 at in-form Corby Town to make it eight defeats in a row, and this after Ben Davisoon had shot them in front in the 12th minute.

Stamford AFC dropped out of the play-off places after failing to hold onto a half-time lead courtesy of Brad Wells’ goal. Hosts Carlton equalised early in the second half and that’s how it stayed as the Daniels dropped two places to seventh ahead of a cracking home game against second-placed Corby on Boxing Day when their unbeaten home record will come under threat.
