Stotfold 1 St Neots 4

Stotfold's third league defeat of the season came at the hands of surprise UCL strugglers St Neots on Tuesday night.

The Rokermen actually took the lead in the 20th minute when Paul Garrett's free-kick from the right was headed down and past Ben Houseago by Scott Rennie running into the six-yard box on 20 minutes.

The lead was shortlived, however, as eight minutes later, Declan Rogers took the ball into the box from the left and fired the ball under Clive Weatherall, in for the unavailable Brad Gillham, at the near post.

The visitors took the lead on 35 minutes when Jamie Steele flicked in a cross from the left, with Stotfold's only real chances being a couple of shots from Alex Fraser and Brett Donnelly from the edge of the box.

The second half got worse for Stotfold on 51 minutes when Keith Thomas slid into the box to meet a low cross from the left.
