Graham Drury's side defeated Belper 4-1 to leapfrog their beaten hosts in the battle for promotion and inflict a third successive defeat on the Derbyshire side.

Top scorer Jack Duffy added the third on the stroke of half-time before Michael Frew sealed the win with eight minutes remaining.

Visiting goalkeeper Dan Haystead then saved a Jonathan Margetts penalty before Alex Peterson netted a 90th minute consolation for the Nailers who dropped below Stamford on goal difference with the Daniels also having a game in hand.

Deeping Rangers recorded a fourth successive United Counties League Premier Division North victory after scoring three times in the final 12 minutes at Selston.

They had trailed to Ben Moore's penalty before Will Bird equalised for the Clarets in the same manner from the spot.

Jack Bloodworth then put Rangers ahead with seven minutes remaining before Jake Brown sealed the win in injury-time.

Blackstones remain in the bottom three of the Division One table after a 5-0 away defeat at Dunkirk while Bourne moved further away from the danger zone after a 3-1 home win over St Andrews.

The Wakes made a flying start as they looked to bounced back from last week's heavy home loss to Aylestone and scored three times in the opening period through Jake Van Der Drift (2) and Harry Brooks.

St Andrews did score a late consolation against a Wakes side who are back in action again on Tuesday night when they host Harrowby United.
