“Absolutely superb” was Marcus Ebdon’s verdict after Spalding United recorded a fourth successive league win.

The Tulips extended their 100 per cent record since he replaced Pat Rayment as manager with a highly-impressive home victory over Coalville Town on Tuesday night.

Top scorer Josh Moreman got the only goal of the game to end Coalville’s three-month unbeaten run in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division South.

Ebdon said: “I couldn’t be any happier with the result and performance.

“Everyone worked hard, although we could have shown better game management at the end instead of going for that second goal when we might have let them back into it.

“All the players were absolutely superb. We knew it was going to be a tough game and everyone really put in a shift out there.

“We are playing well at the moment to get these results.”

On Saturday, fourth-placed Spalding make the trip to Rugby Town who are just above the relegation zone.

The Tulips should be boosted by the return of midfielder Sam Murphy who was forced to miss the midweek match due to illness.

Ebdon added: “I know their manager Dale Belford because we were together at Tamworth.

“I also know a couple of their players and we’ll get reports on the team over the next couple of days.

“We have a small squad but if we pick up injuries then we’ll have a look at bringing players in.

“Sam has not been feeling well for a few days so we told him to stay away because we didn’t want a bug spreading around the squad.

“It was a big blow to lose him but I thought the two Dans (Banister and Lawlor) were superb on Tuesday.”
