Brigg Town Reserves climbed to sixth in the Balcan Lighting Supplies Lincolnshire League table by recording their third win of the season.

Lowly Market Rasen Town were on the receiving end as the Zebras moved above champions Hykeham Town, who were on cup duty.

The two sides had met three times in the last four weeks and each time the Zebras have come out on top.

They followed their two Supplementary Cup victories with a 2-0 win at Rase Park.

After a goalless first half the visitors stepped up the pace and clinched the match with goals from Ben Brown, his eighth of the season, and Adam Gowing.

Elsewhere, Simon Mowbray bagged a hat-trick for Lincoln Railway AFC in their win at Horncastle who are going through a goal drought.

In the Challenge Cup, Skegness United needed penalties to squeeze through against bottom club Ruston Sports, while neighbours Skegness Town were being edged out by a solitary Cleethorpes Town Development Squad goal.

Hykeham hit Wyberton for six in their quarter-final, while Sleaford Town Reserves eased their way into the last four with victory at CGB Humbertherm.
