Just a few days after their unbeaten start to the league season was ended, Holbeach United lost again at Carter’s Park.

The Tigers went down 2-0 to Yaxley on Wednesday night with goals from Dan Cotton and Joe Butterworth.

Following a couple of early chances for the Cuckoos, the deadlock was broken by Cotton three minutes before the break.

Aaron Eyett and Josh Ford went close for Holbeach but with 20 minutes left Butterworth doubled the advantage.

Tom Roberts’ side - who lost 2-1 to Desborough Town last weekend - will be looking to bounce back at Leicester Nirvana on Saturday.
