Saturday football: Injury-time penalty denies Pinchbeck a big win, Tigers game off after Oadby fold

A 94th-minute penalty denied Pinchbeck United a memorable win at Rugby Town on Saturday, while Holbeach United were left without a game due to opponents Oadby Town folding on Friday.

Starting with Pinchbeck, they looked set for a massive Future Lions UCL Premier Division victory at Rugby but were ultimately frustrated in a 1-1 draw.

The Knights led at half-time thanks to an Ollie Maltby finish from a Lee Beeson corner, but Edwin Ahenkorah’s penalty deep into injury time pinched a point for the hosts.

Ian Dunn’s fifth-placed side are now three points behind Holbeach in fourth, with both sides now having played the same amount of games.

That’s after the Tigers’ scheduled game against Oadby was postponed due to the Leicestershire side resigning from the United Counties League on Friday because of their “unsustainable finances”.

Meanwhile, Spalding United slipped a place to 17th in the Evo-Stik NPL East Division table on their free weekend. They do, however, remain six points clear of the relegation zone.

In the ChromaSport PDFL, the Premier Division derby between Tydd and Long Sutton Athletic finished 2-2 at the Fenland Stadium.

In Division One, both Crowland Town and Spalding Town collected home wins as they beat Uppingham Town 1-0 and FC Peterborough 4-1 respectively.
