Goode said: “In the first half we were excellent.

“The way we played last midweek at AFC Kempston Rovers in the Hinchingbrooke Cup gave us plenty of momentum.

“We created chances and we were back to our old selves while also defending robustly when we had to.

“Our attacking play was as good as it has been all season when we opened them up.

“It wasn’t all one-way as Daniel Bircham also made a couple of saves but we had good delivery into the box and clinical finishing.

“They had done a good job on us at their place when they beat us so we knew we had to get the ball forward quicker.

“In the second half we took our foot off the gas but I told the lads to enjoy being 4-0 up.

“Although they scored twice, we always felt three points were secure.

“Everybody played well and it was a good day for the club with an attendance of 123 which was pleasing as both Spalding United and Stamford were also playing at home on Saturday.”

Deeping went ahead after 15 minutes through Scott Mooney then Scott Coupland struck twice in a five-minute spell.

Goalkeeper Dan George saved David Burton-Jones’ penalty but was beaten by Chris Hibbitt two minutes into first-half added time.

Craig Smith reduced the arrears three minutes past the hour mark and an own-goal by Spencer Tinkler six minutes from full-time gave the visitors a second.

Deeping: Bircham, Flack, Smith, Burton-Jones, Tinkler, Hunnings, Avis (sub Dunn 66 mins), Hibbitt, Mooney, Coupland, Humphrey (sub Bird 61 mins). Sub not used: Marsden.
