Joe Power was the two-goal hero as Long Buckby claimed a welcome win in the UCL Premier Division on Tuesday night.

Phil Mason’s men have been struggling for results this season, and on Saturday they were hammered 6-0 at Mason’s former club Wellingborough Town.

But on Tuesday night they secured three big points as rock-bottom Harborough Town were beaten 2-0.

The Leicestershire side travelled to Station Road on the back of a three-match unbeaten run, but Power made the Buckby breakthrough six minutes before the break.

The midfielder added a second home goal from the penalty spot eight minutes past the hour.

Another spot kick gave Harborough the chance to get back in the game, but Jack Burrows’ kick was saved by home custodian Alastair Worby.

The result sees Buckby comfortable in 14th place in the table.

This Saturday Mason’s men travel to mid-table Holbeach, but they do not have a fixture on Boxing Day.

In division one, it was another bad week for Woodford United.

On Saturday they travelled to in-form ON Chenecks, and were beaten 6-0.

The result means Woodford stay bottom of the table, with just three points all season.

This Saturday they entertain another struggling side in Blackstones at Byfield Road (ko 3pm).

And the Stamford side will be gunning for revenge, as it was they who were beaten 2-1 by the Reds on home soil back on November 2.

Like Buckby in the premier division, Woodford are without a fixture on Boxing Day.
