There are two divisions between the sides, but the gulf looked even wider at the Branch Bros Stadium as Sports ran in seven second-half goals.

Dan Lawlor, Josh Moreman and young Tiago Nassunculo all scored twice with Cameron Johnson, Maniche Sani and Mitch Griffiths also on target for a team on FA Cup duty at Bishop’s Stortford this Saturday (September 21).

Deeping Rangers secured a welcome 5-0 win over bottom club Sleaford Town in the United Counties Premier Division with Scott Mooney netting twice, but Spalding United bowed out of the Northern Premier Division League Cup on penalties to higher-level Gainsborough Trinity.
