Newmarket Town won for the first time on their Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division travels since January thanks to a 2-1 victory away at Haverhill Rovers last Friday night.

When the two sides met six days earlier, it was Rovers that triumphed 3-2 courtesy of Marcus Hunt’s stoppage-time penalty.

However, on this occasion, Newmarket came out on top with goals from Deakan Napier and Richard Chadwick.

On Saturday, Kevin Grainger’s youthful side are on the road again when they take on promotion-hunting Godmanchester Rovers (3pm).

n Sixth-placed Mildenhall Town were without a game last weekend, although the recently-signed Ben Saywer was on target during his run out for the club’s Under-21 team against Kettering at Recreation Way.

This Saturday, Hall will play host to Haverhill (3pm) in what will be the fourth meeting between the two sides this season.

Currently, Dean Greygoose’s men lead the head to head record, 2-1.

n In the Ryman League Division One North, Soham Town Rangers were beaten for the third match in a row, this time by Maldon & Tiptree.

The Greens, who squandered a number of chances over the course of the contest, fell behind in the second half when Darren McQueen and Kieran Monloius both found the back of the net.

Jordan Gent pulled one back for the hosts in stoppage time, but it was too little, too late.

On Saturday, Soham return to action with a trip to Witham Town (3pm).

Then, on Tuesday night, Dereham Town will be the visitors to Julius Martin Lane (7.45pm).
