Not only did Mickleover make it a second consecutive victory, but the clean sheet places them top of the table after their home win against Berkhamsted.

Starting line-up: 1-Oliver Bosworth 2-Jake Bennett 3-Ryan Wilson 4-Will Atkinson 5-Fin Delap 6-Ethan Mann 7-Andy Dales 8-Dan Bradley 9-Andrew Wright 10-Marcus Barnes 11-Oli Greaves. Subs: Stuart Beavon, Jim Pollard, Geore Nunn, Joe Bateman, Ben Sault.

Sports made two changes from last weeks win at St.Ives, Jake Bennett was back in his more familiar right back, with skipper Ryan Wilson coming in on the left.

Ben Sault dropped to the bench, where he was joined by Joe Bateman back from injury.

It had been a strong start from Sports, with the defence of Bennett, Delap, Mann and Wilson looking solid throughout the first half.

But the opening goal of the game was proving elusive and half-time was approaching when Barnes finally broke the deadlock with his third goal of the season after 43 minutes, 1-0.

Into the second half and Mickleover were soon looking for a second and on the hour they got their wish when Barnes was on the mark again.

Five minutes later Sports made their first substitution when Beavon came on Wright, followed two minutes later with Sault on for Bradley.

It was the latter’s appearance that put the game beyond our visitors reach, with Sault making it 3-0, having only been on the pitch four minutes.

Nunn came on for Man of the Match Barnes for the final 15 minutes, but Sports weren’t finished yet, as Sault added a fourth after 78 minutes, securing not only another win, but another clean sheet for Bosworth too, putting Mickleover on top for the table.
