AFTER a really battling performance against league champions St Neots at the weekend, United put in their worst second-half performance of the season against rivals Long Buckby.

Looking comfortable for most of the first-half, United looked set to go in all square at the break only to have a blip in concentration to give Dan Holman the easiest goal he will score this season. As the ball was swung in from the corner it fell to Holman who was unmarked on the six-yard box and he made no mistake with his finish.

One nil down at half-time was disappointing as United had dealt with everything the Bucks had thrown at them.

The second-half was a different ball game as Ling doubled the advantage on 61 minutes then Ben Jones brought down Robinson in the area and Bunting made it three before the 70-minute mark.

And Holman rounded his evening off and a hat-trick with goals on 70 minutes and 88 minutes.

United will look to finish the season off with a trip to Boston on Saturday. A good result here will set them up for a cup final tie against Cogenhoe United in the Buckingham Charity Cup.

This will be held at Buckingham Town’s Ford Meadow Ground on May 2 with a 7.30pm kick-off.
