Cleethorpes AKP 0-1 Market Rasen Town

A solitary Paul Nicholson goal was enough to secure three points for Market Rasen Town at the Linden Homes ground, home of Cleethorpes AKP.

The win saw Rasen gain revenge on the team that beat them 5-0 in the Supplementary Cup earlier in the month and also lifted Rasen out of the bottom two of the Sills and Betteridge Lincolnshire Football League Premier Division.

Horncastle Town have a chance to close the gap at the top of the league table when they welcome Market Rasen to The Wong on Saturday.

Horncastle currently sit in second place in the table, five points behind leaders Skegness Town, who are in cup action at the weekend, and will be a stern test for Rasen.
