The champions complete their successful league season with the rematch against old foes St Neots this week (Thursday night).

Their final away game was a largely uneventful one hindered by the wind blowing across the pitch and not giving either team any advantage.

The first half passed with both sides failing to get a shot on target.

Fehmi got a low shot on target at the start of the second half but the lack of power made it a comfortable save for Danny Tomlinson.

The deadlock was finally broken on 53 minutes when, after some good passing in the build-up, Lee Allinson lifted the ball over the last defender and then chipped Tomlinson as he came running towards him on the edge of the box.

Shaw was put through in the middle a few minutes later but his shot was straight at Gillham.

He again went close, this time hitting the upright from a tight angle on the right, on 87 minutes.

The Sleaford equaliser came in stoppage time with a long throw being headed down for Chris Jones to fire in from close range at the near post.
