Asfordby FC matched the Senior League Division One pacesetters as they broke down the stubborn resistance of Lutterworth Town Reserves on Saturday.

After a goalless first half, strikes from Leighton Nicholson, Junior Gaskin, and leading scorer Stan Logan gave Asfordby a 3-1 win at Hoby Road over the mid-table side.

Logan made it 13 goals for the campaign, while Gaskin reached double figures.

It was a seventh straight win in league and cup for Asfordby who stay fourth, but they could rise to second and within a couple of points of leaders Rugby Borough if they win their games in hand.

Jon Allsop’s side are on a 15-match unbeaten run stretching back to September, and next travel to Anstey Town on Saturday for a 3pm kick-off, weather permitting.

But elsewhere in Division One, Holwell Sports Development Squad lost their derby with Barrow Town Reserves.

Goals from Chavez Peters, Joseph Larter and James Watson gave the visitors a 3-0 win and condemned third-bottom Holwell to their third straight defeat.

Holwell face a trip to County Hall on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).
