Sleaford Town salvaged a point in the UCL Premier Division at the weekend, having briefly led the game.

Town opened the scoring in the clash against Desborough Town on Saturday through Scott Coupland, but conceded minutes later to see the teams go into the half time break 1-1.

In the opening minutes of the second half, Town conceded again and left it until the final 10 minutes of the game to level the score at 2-2, with Euan Clarke finding the net after coming off the bench.

It leaves Town 14th in the table of 21 teams, having now gone a month without a win.

Chairman Brian Rowland said: “It’s not a bad point, but I would hope we can beat these teams. They are a mid-table side. We have got to try to beat the teams that are below us and around us.”

While Town are without a win in the last six games, their recent results are in improvement on what went before.

At the start of that run, Town lost 9-0 and 4-0, but have since fared better, with two draws to their name.

Rowland said: “It’s picked up. They have got nearly everyone fit again. The squad is pretty strong. It’s a good squad.”

Town next face sixth-placed Cogenhoe United away on Saturday. Kick off at Compton Park, in Brafield Road, is at 3pm.

Rowland said he expected a ‘tough game’.

He said: “It’s a hard place to go and get anything.”
