Pinchbeck United launched a superb comeback to defeat Riverside in the Peterborough and District Premier Division.

Ian Dunn’s side found themselves 3-0 down at half-time but Adam Abell’s double plus goals from Tom Gosling, Steven Jucikas and Oliver Maltby sealed a 5-4 victory.

The victory leaves Pinchbeck fourth in the table but have a game in hand on leaders Coates Athletic.

Moulton Harrox are two points behind Pinchbeck in sixth after a 1-0 defeat at Stilton, while promoted Langtoft are quickly finding their feet at this level.

They recorded their fifth win in their last seven games, and their third in succession, as they beat Leverington Sports 2-1.

The victory at Manor Way was far more comfortable than the scoreline suggests and lifted the Vikings up to ninth in the Peterborough League Premier Division.

Talal Karama, the veteran of what is a young Langtoft side, opened the scoring in the first half when he chased down a through ball by captain Mark Hynes, before coolly rounding the keeper and slotting home.

Jacob Smitheringale headed a Jordan Avis cross onto the bar and then Avis himself sent a header wide when well placed.

Avis did add his name to the scoresheet midway through the half though, when he was played in by Rhys Ford and sprinted away from his marker before firing low past the keeper.

Avis had a further effort ruled out for offside before Leverington scored with five minutes to go but the Vikings saw the game out to earn a thoroughly deserved victory.

Langtoft manager Phil Gadsby said: “We are starting to get to grips with this league now and have hit a bit of form at the right time.

“It was a very accomplished display on Saturday. We should have put the game to bed a bit earlier because if we had drawn that game it would have been a travesty.

“I’m looking forward to playing Thorney this weekend as we enjoyed some good battles with them last season in Division One and they’ve shown they’re more than capable of holding their own in this league as well.”

Crowland were hammered 5-0 at Netherton United in the PFA Senior Cup.
