The Blues remain top of the Northern Premier League, despite losing their unbeaten home league run with a 2-0 loss to Grantham Town.

The Turnbull Ground passed a lunchtime pitch inspection, despite flooding in the area caused by Monday's rain. 

Lee Shaw scored the game's opening goal, on 26 minutes, after Grantham's number ten charged down 'keeper Shane Bland who cleared against the striker, sending the ball spiralling into the empty net.

The visitors who won it with a breakaway goal, 16 minutes from time. It was Shaw again who popped up in the six yard box to slide in between Bland and his right-hand post.
