FOOTBALL: Victories for Daniels and Rangers

Have your say

Lincoln United 4 Stamford 5

STAMFORD won a nine-goal thriller at Lincoln yesterday to bring back memories of their high-scoring early season encounters.

The Daniels fell behind in the first minute to a Tom Garrick goal but two quick goals from Bruno Holden, the second from the penalty spot, had put Stamford ahead in the 21st minute.

But Stamford's lead didn't last long with George Zuerner levelling just a minute later.

Two minutes after Zuerner's goal, Tyrone Kirk put Stamford back in front but both teams found the nete again before half-time. Jack McGovern scored for Lincoln on 35 minutes and Nathan Watson restores Stamford's lead (4-3 at this point) just before half time.

Kirk added his second midway through the second half but Zuerner ensured a nervous finale by adding Lincoln's fourth with quarter of an hour to go.

The result leaves Stamford seventh in the Evo-Stik First Division South with just one game remaining, the visit of Rainworth Miners Welfare to the Premier Kitchens Arena on Saturday afternoon.

DEEPING Rangers made it 15 unbeaten in the league with a 2-1 victory against Boston Town at Outgang Road.

The visitors took the lead in the first minute through Lorand Borbely but Ciaron Holt levelled on the hour. Ash Stevens scored the winner with a quarter of an hour remaining to keep Rangers fourth in the United Counties Leage, two points ahead of Holbeach United.

The battle between the top two was won by Long Buckby, who beat leaders King's Lynn 2-1. Buckby have closed the gap to six points with two games in hand of Lynn.

Long Buckby visit Blackstones on Wednesday evening.

Rangers' next match is away at Northampton Spencer on Saturday afternoon.
