Josh Moreman’s deflected drive after seven minutes put the Tulips in control and substitute Jordan Nuttell nodded the second goal with 16 minutes to go.

Holbeach United set up a derby date at Wisbech Town in the Emirates FA Cup preliminary round a week on Saturday thanks to a 4-0 victory in their replay with Ely City.

The Tigers needed a late equaliser with ten men on Saturday but they had few problems this time with doubles from Josh Ford and Gary King.
