The Cuckoos made the four hour coach trip with just 11 outfield players including former Posh player Furnell and predictably suffered a 5-1 defeat against in-form opponents.

Dan Cotton did bring Yaxley level in the first-half before Ramsbottom took charge.

There was a shock United Counties Premier Division defeat for third-placed Deeping Rangers who were thumped 4-0 at home by Oadby. Former Deeping player Sam Hollis bagged a hat-trick for Oadby as third-placed Deeping lost for just the second time in the Premier Division.
