Pinchbeck United picked up a sixth successive clean sheet and extended their unbeaten run to nine games.

Revenge was the aim for Langtoft United in the Peterborough League Premier Division after two extra-time goals settled the Lincolnshire FA Junior Cup tie two weeks ago.

The home side started brightly as Tony Wooding could have had a hat-trick in the first 10 minutes with three long-range efforts.

The opening goal came when Dan Jarman headed clear but the ball fell to Nick Bishop who bundled it past Andrew Isabell in the Langtoft goal.

A second-half penalty decision decided the game as Daryl Todd was adjudged to have committed a foul and Dan Woods fired the spot-kick into the roof of the net.

Langtoft manager Ryan Hunnings said: “In the first half we showed what we’re all about and gave a good account of ourselves.

“It was a competitive game between two very evenly-matched sides – unfortunately the luck was with them this week.

“It was good to see we’ve still got that battling spirit but we need to reintroduce the energy that was the main catalyst to our good start.”

Meanwhile, Moulton Harrox made it 10 wins out of 10 with a 7-0 victory away to bottom-of-the-table Crowland Town.

Ian Bradbury (2), Ben Allen (2), Ollie Maltby, Joe Townsend and Ryan Wheeler were on target.

Third-placed Holbeach United reserves thrashed Deeping Rangers reserves 8-1 thanks to Jack Smith (3), Kieran Rose (2), Robert Lewsley (2) and Paul Newcombe.

The Division Two game at Spalding Town was abandoned when they were 5-1 up.

Crowland’s reserves refused to come out for the second half as they started with 11 players and suffered two injuries.
