Sleaford Town ended their losing streak in emphatic fashion at the weekend, finishing the clash with their second-biggest goal haul of the season together with their first clean sheet in three months.

Town shrugged off six consecutive defeats in the UCL Premier Division to put four past Desborough Town on Saturday.

It was Town’s first win since October and their most comprehensive since their 5-0 victory over Harborough Town in September ... and they did it on the road.

Scott Coupland put Town in front soon after the break, before Ryan Parnell, David Hone and Euan Clarke completed the scoring.

The result lifted them to 15th in the league of 21 teams.

Assistant manager Terry Fleming said: “We are really, really pleased with he guys’ performance on Saturday. Obviously, we went through a bad run and it’s just good to get the three points.”

Fleming said Town spoke of no significant change in Town’s approach to the game, other than a slightly more defensive set up.

Of the affect of the result on the players, he said: “It gave them that belief that if we keep doing the simple things well and the right things it will come, we can’t be out of luck for that long. We were passing the ball well and we were creating chance every week.”

Town’s next clash in the UCL Premier Division is away against Wellingborough Town on Saturday.
