Grantham Town 3 Shaw Lane 1

The Ducks slump to a defeat, despite taking the lead.

Shaw Lane had the better of the opportunities in the opening exchanges.

Godwin Abadaki shot wide on eight minutes, but the visitors soon took the lead.

Kieran Lugsden hit home on the 13th minute when he found himself unmarked after running in the box.

Lugsden latched onto a cross by Ben Gordon after the defender worked down the left with Abadaki.

Goal mouth action was then pretty limited for the Ducks as Grantham steadily increased the pressure throughout the game.

Ryan Serrant picked up an injury on 53 minutes and was replaced shortly after by Gavin Rothery.

This moved the goal scorer to right back and it seemed to proved costly as the shape of the team became unbalanced.

The equaliser came from their top scorer, Lee Shaw, who was put clear into the box and put the ball past Ed Wilczynski on 68 minutes.

Shaw gave the home side the lead on 73 minutes as he pounced onto a ball near the front post following a scramble in the box.

Grantham almost extended their lead but were denied by the post

The scoring was rounded off on 83 when substitute Jordan Hempenstall put a third past Wilczynski following a free-kick.

The closest Shaw Lane came to a second shot at goal was a free-kick by Alex Byrne which flew just over sub Paul Clayton and into the arms of the mostly untroubled Kieran Preston.
