Stamford AFC beat Buxton at home on Tuesday night thanks to an injury-time goal by Shawn Richards.

Buxton were down to 10 men after Leon Osbourne was given a straight red card just before half-time for a two-footed challenge on Nathan Haines.

And in the dying moments Richards found the net to give the Daniels three much-needed points.

It’s not enough to lift Stamford out of the bottom four in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division but they are level on points with Whitton Albion who are one place above them and the relegation zone.

Elsewhere Deeping Rangers beeat Harrowby in the Lincs Senior Trophy at Outgang Road. The score was 1-1 at half-time.

Bourne Town lost away to Potton 5-3 in the Chromasport and Trophies UCL Division One. The Wakes were 3-0 down at half-time.

It was Potton’s first league win in over a month, writes Jeremy Biggs on the UCL website, as the Wakes’ second half comeback fell just short in an open encounter.

Bourne started brightly with Danny Pick’s shot flashing across goal in their first attack, but it was the Royals who made the breakthrough after sixteen minutes, Jamie Lally netting with a low shot.

Alex Brockbank’s dipping volley found Craig Lewis in the home goal well placed to save before Potton doubled their lead after 22 minutes with a well worked goal, Callum Forster exchanging passes before Lally before drilling a low cross shot beyond Aaron Bellairs into the far corner.

Alec Robinson was just wide from a Jason Kilbride centre, and the two then combined again with Robinson’s fierce shot on the turn too high.

Potton were proving clinical in front of goal and went three clear on 35 minutes, Steve Muggridge finding Nick Cooper whose ball in behind the defence was controlled by Lally with his first touch and finished with his second.

Six minutes into the second half Stuart Rose fouled Foster with Lally dispatching the spot kick to complete his hat trick.

Bourne suddenly found their shooting boots as they roared back into contention.

Kilbride started the comeback with a 25 yard shot low into Lewis’s right hand corner after 56 minutes.

Five minutes later Kilbride delivered an inch perfect ball from the left for Seb Hood to slot home after a perfectly timed run.

On 70 minutes Cooper pushed Dan Mason in the area and Kilbride fired home from the spot.

The revival was halted eight minutes from time when Joe Aris and Cooper set up Muggridge to score with a low drive from the right side of the box.

Bourne: Aaron Bellairs, Alex Brockbank, Tom Cardall (John Morton), Richard Nelson, Stuart Rose (Dan Mason), Aaron Jesson, Andy Moss, Seb Hood (George Holliday), Alec Robinson, Danny Pick, Jason Kilbride.
