Thomas Atherley was also on target on the 4-4 draw which keeps the visitors in fifth.

In Division One, Bottesford were thrashed 6-0 at third-placed Shepshed Amateurs, and their reserves side fared no better in Division Three.

Their promotion hopes took a hit when they were beaten 3-1 at home by Sutton Bonington Reserves, Robert Stecko with the consolation.
