Ruston Sports 3-2 Market Rasen Town

The Sills and Betteridge Lincolnshire League’s Supplementary Cup quarter-finals produced some close encounters, none more so than the game involving Market Rasen.

Steven John netted twice as Ruston beat Market Rasen Town by the odd goal in five. Scott Nicholson was also on target for the Lincoln-based side.

Rasen’s goals were scored by Trevor Taylor and Michael Kelly.

This weekend sees a return to league action for Market Rasen, who will host Nettleham on Saturday. Nettleham lie just one place ahead of Rasen, four points separating the sides.
