Belper Town 2-0 at home.

That cost them when in the 57th minute Mohammed Ibrahim crossed to Thomas Robinson who headed the ball across the goal to Johnson who nodded it into the top corner.

The Collieries doubled their lead 12 minutes later when Eli Hey slotted home the rebound from Dunn’s shot.
Town thought they had gotten a goal back through Jon Oglesby, but he was flagged offside, leaving Cleethorpes 2-0 down at halfway.
Ponte added to their lead seven minutes into the second half to make it 3-0, this time after Jake Picton steered a Glyn Cotton free kick home from six yards out, which would be enough to seal their sixth win of the season. Pickering Town’s last gasp 2-1 win over
Carlton Town saw them climb leapfrog Wisbech Town into 18th place.
Through the first half an hour at Calton Town’s game against Pickering Town it was Carlton who had the best chances.
Pickering keeper Charlie Andrew twice produced fine saves to keep the hosts out, notably a finger tip save after just four minutes.

Pickering Town were able to break through in the 51st minute when Billy Logan burst through Carlton’s defence and finished into the bottom corner.
In the 75th minute Joe Brothwell equalised for the home side after Pickering failed to deal with a long throw in.

Rhodes calmly scored the game’s only goal to lift Stocksbridge up to 15th in the table.
