Market Rasen Town 3-0 Cleethorpes AKP

Market Rasen Town continued their rich vein of form with victory over Cleethorpes AKP in the Sills and Betteridge Lincolnshire League.

Guy Smith and George Burke both opened their accounts for the season by scoring when Cleethorpes visited Rase Park.

Andrew Belt also scored his second of the campaign as Rasen recorded their first clean sheet since January 10.

The victory also clinched a league double over Cleethorpes, who held all the aces when the two sides met in the cup competitions this season.

The result sees Rasen close to within a point of Cleethorpes in ninth and Nettleham in eighth.

Rasen will now face a tough fortnight as they welcome fourth placed Sleaford Town Reserves to Rase Park this Saturday, April 4 before another home game against title chasing Hykeham Town on April 11.
