Jake Duffy opened the scoring for the Daniels after 16 minutes and Elliot Sandy made it 2-0 10 minutes later. Delroy Gordon and Grant Ryan pounced for goals in the second half as Stamford recovered from a 5-0 home drubbing at the weekend to move up to 12th place.

The formbook was turned upside down in the United Counties Premier Division as a five-game winning streak for Wisbech Town came to an end at Eynesbury, a team that hadn’t won in their previous five matches.

The Fenmen were always playing catch-up after conceding two early goals. Billy Smith and Sam Murphy were the scorers for Wisbech who remain seventh.
