Hotshot Ryan Oliver added another double as Deeping Rangers ran out impressive 3-1 winners over Northampton Sileby Rangers on Tuesday night.
Victory at Outgang Road boosted Deeping’s hopes of finishing second in the UCL Premier Division as they now lie one point behind Huntingdon Town although they have played two games more. Deeping took a 16th minute lead when Oliver, who also grabbed a double in Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Boston Town, chipped the keeper from the edge of the box. Dan Flack went close with a rising drive before setting up a chance for Oliver, who headed over at the far post. James Doughty pulled off a fine save for Deeping at the start of the second half and it wasn’t long before they doubled their lead when Scott Ginty floated a corner to the edge of the box for Stacy Cartwright to head home. Substitute Kallum Smith then delivered a perfect cross for Ciaran Holt who went close with a header. The third came after 68 minutes when Smith crossed for Oliver to net with a stunning overhead kick. Sileby scored an 80th minute consolation but Deeping deservedly took the points. Deeping: James Doughty, Dan Flack, Craig Parker, Spencer Tinkler, Simon Ashton, Ciaran Holt, Jamie Graham, Scott Ginty, Ryan Oliver, Matt Heron (Scott Bogusz), Stacy Cartwright (Kallum Smith). Meanwhile, Bourne Town face a difficult home clash with third-placed Eynesbury Rovers on Saturday as they bid to climb out of the bottom two in UCL Division One. Darren Munton’s side have been much improved in recent weeks, particularly away from home, and are also going into the game on the back of keeping two consecutive clean sheets at home. But The Wakes should have taken all three points in their 0-0 draw with Burton Park Wanderers against whom Munton’s men wasted a host of chances.
