Cleethorpes Town Res 2

Sleaford Town Res 0

In-form Sleaford Town Reserves hadn’t conceded a league goal for three games and travelled to Cleethorpes looking to make it 13 points out of 15, after a good 4-0 mid-week victory over Boston Town Reserves.

But league leaders Cleethorpes put an end to their four-game unbeaten run with strikes from Brody Robertson and Josh Williams.

Sleaford battled well and missed a couple of chances but they couldn’t find a way through the Cleethorpes’ defence.
