Sleaford Town v Long Buckby, Saturday December 15 Tony Edwards scores for Sleaford.

Sleaford Town boss Glenn Maddison is hoping the team will continue their winning ways after their latest victory this weekend.

The squad moved further away from danger after their second win in as many matches on Saturday.

Town beat Long Buckby 1-0 in what manager Glen Maddison called a ‘scrappy’ match this weekend.

Tony Edwards proved the difference as he grabbed the winning goal, while the club kept their first clean sheet of the season.

The goalscorer was well supported by the team’s star player Adam Fenton and former Boston United and Lincoln Youth Academy player William Rawdon.

Maddison said: “We did alright and managed to keep a clean sheet, the first one in the league since I’ve been there. I’m pleased with the result overall.

“We weren’t pretty, it was very, very scrappy, but we didn’t give up and battled on and dug it out in the end.

“We didn’t play much football and they didn’t play much.

“It brings a little more confidence into the situation.”

The score followed their 2-1 victory against AFC Kempston Rovers.

The team will now face local rivals Boston Town on Boxing Day (Wednesday) and Maddison said they will go into the match with no expectations.

He said: “There’s no expectations, we know we don’t have any budget and we know we’re going to be down to how we do things big in this match.

“I’m from Boston though, and don’t want to be disgraced in anyway.”
