Market Rasen Town were on the wrong end of Sleaford Town Reserves’ merciless finishing as the Lincolnshire Football League leaders maintained their 100 per cent record.

Sleaford moved 10 points clear at the top of the table with a 4-0 win on Saturday - their eighth of the season.

Nathan Thompson opened the scoring for the home side before Shaun Popple stabbed home number two.

Sleaford were awarded a penalty which Thompson converted, to make it seven from his last four league games, before Jac Wright took his total in all competitions to 11 when he wrapped up the scoring.

The defeat - Rasen’s fifth from six matches - left them second-bottom.

Elsewhere, Brigg Town Reserves shared the spoils with Horncastle Town at The Wong.

Richard Jackson continued his rich vein of scoring for the hosts and remains the only Horncastle player to have scored in the league this season, having netted the winner in the reverse fixture.

But Adam Gowing ensured there would be no repeat of the September defeat with the equaliser for Brigg.
