SPALDING United saw off derby rivals Holbeach United 2-0 to reel off a fourth straight UCL Premier Division win.

First-half goals from the two players the Tigers probably feared most - in-form strikers Greg Smith and Simon Mowbray - saw them to a 2-0 win.

Rain fell throughout at the Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field and 310 braved the conditions for not a thriller, but decent fare.
