Things are getting tight at the top of the Balcan Lighting Supplies Lincolnshire League after the top two crashed to defeats on their travels during the latest round of matches.

Leaders Grimsby Borough Reserves fell by the odd goal in three at Market Rasen Town, while second placed Skegness Town were beaten 3-2 at Hykeham Town.

Horncastle Town put pressure on the top two with a tidy win over Lincoln Moorlands Railway, while Sleaford Sports Amateurs were held to a draw at home to Louth Town.

Brigg Town Reserves won a seven-goal thriller at Nettleham, while Immingham Town hit Harrowby United’s second string for six.

The match between CGB Humbertherm and Ruston Sports was postponed due to players being involved in the County’s Under 18s squad.
