Holbeach United slipped into fifth place after ‘the same old story’ on Saturday.

The Tigers seemed to have taken control at Carter’s Park when substitute Lewis Leckie broke the deadlock against Leicester Nirvana.

Just five minutes later, though, Jordan Nelson fired home the leveller.

Assistant manager Tim Cole took charge for the fourth fixture of boss Seb Hayes’ stadium ban.

Darren Edey left the club in midweek so Cole was on the touchline alongside former Oakham United chief Wayne Oldaker.

Cole said: “We might look back later in the season and feel that was a good point.

“The general feeling in the changing room was that we had caused them more problems.

“But it was the same old story because we couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net more often.

“We were so pleased for Leckie to get another goal and we had played really well until that stage.

“We got on top and then a 10-minute spell included the equaliser before half-time.

“Our work-rate was good and maybe we need a little bit of luck going for us.

“I can’t remember Rick Drury making any saves and we were going forward right until the end.

“Spencer Tinkler made a fantastic tackle and we were hoping it was deja vu with a stoppage-time winner.

“Leicester Nirvana are not a bad side but three of our title rivals won on Saturday.

“We need to keep our unbeaten run going. We are looking to shake things up because we need more goals and we want the right combination.

“Coming into the first-team management team, I wanted to learn off the boss so it will be great to have him back soon because he’s a big character.

“On Saturday, it was great to have someone else to bounce ideas off.”
