This victory not only secures 3 points in United’s promotion push, but also the 10 goals scored could also have a big say in the teams who are promoted.

There are four teams still in with a chance of the two promotion places going into the last matches next Saturday.

Kirton currently lead the table on 39 points, and goal difference of 30, followed by United on 37/31, Boston College on 37/25 and Horncastle Town Res on 36/26.

Although Kirton lead the table they could still lose out when they visit Woodhall Spa who beat Kirton 3 weeks ago 3 – 0 in the Challenge Cup Final.

United travel to Friskney who upto Saturday they were still in the promotion push, but lost 3-2 at Woodhall which means they are out of the race.

Horncastle travel to Old Doningtonians and Boston College are at home to bottom club Freiston.

Therefore at 4.15pm on Saturday the promoted clubs will be known.

Keaton Garianger 2 goals

Once again United had to make changes to the starting line up from the previous week with Nathan Wetton, Kane Crossley, Jake Woodhouse and Ben Drysdale coming in.

The visitors were a much changed side from the one United met on the opening day of the season at Donington when United recorded a 2 – 0 victory.

From the start United had complete control of the match and once the first goal came from Anthony Miller the goals came at regular intervals in the first half from Jake Woodhouse, Ben Drysdale and Kane Crossley. The nearest the visitors came to a goal was after 25 minutes when they broke down their left and when the shot came in it just missed the far post before being cleared.

The first half ended with United having a 4 – 0 lead, however it could have been double with more composure in front of goal.

United carried on in the second half where they left off in the first and scored two quick goals at the start and this was the pattern for the remainder of the match.

Again as in the first Old Doningtonians were limited to isolated raids on the United goal, however caused little problems to Jack Minor in goal.

Further goals in the second half came from Zak Bray (2), Jake Woodhouse, Ben Drysdale and Keaton Grainger (2) including one penalty.

These goals may have an impact when United travel to Friskney this coming Saturday.

Special praise to referee Terry Knott who allowed drinks break in each half with the above average temperature for the time of year.

Team: Jack Minor, Zak Bray, Alex Kendrick (Sam Sleight), Arun Gray, Nathan Wetton, Conor Minor, Jake Woodhouse, Kane Crossley, Anthony Miller, Ben Drysdale, Keaton Grainger.

MoM: Jake Woodhouse

Next Saturday (12th January) United travel to Friskney to play their final match of the season. Kick Off 2.30pm.
