Holbeach United slipped to fourth place in the title race after failing to beat 10-man Wellingborough Town at Carter’s Park.

The Tigers are now four points behind leaders Yaxley with three games in hand at the top of the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division.

Holbeach couldn’t take full advantage of a red card shown to Nathanel Ansu four minutes before half-time - although Danny Brooks’ long-range free-kick put them ahead soon after the break.

Wellingborough were awarded a controversial penalty on 73 minutes, converted by Justin Dowling.

Tigers substitute Matt Warfield was dismissed with five minutes left.

The 1-1 draw leaves Holbeach two points ahead of Deeping Rangers whose home fixture with Eynesbury Rovers was postponed due to a frozen pitch.

Pinchbeck United’s trip to rock-bottom Stewarts & Lloyds was called off because of a waterlogged pitch.

The Knights are seven points clear with two matches in hand in Division One after Raunds Town’s 5-3 home win over mid-table Bourne Town.

Ty Clark’s early opener for the Shopmates was quickly cancelled out by Adam Rothery.

Zak Munton marked his return with a goal and Dan Schiavi - who has signed from Deeping - made it 3-1 before the break.

Jamie Russell began the fightback nine minutes into the second half then Clark levelled on 80 minutes.

Mason Thomas fired a double on 82 and 87 minutes to send the Wakes back home empty-handed.

Spalding United drew 1-1 with Stocksbridge Park Steels in the Evo-Stik South.

Tom Siddons put the Tulips ahead 10 minutes into his debut but Rory Coleman levelled and then saw a last-minute penalty hit the post.
