Nether­ton United are clos­ing in on a year-long un­beaten record in the Peter­bor­ough Premier Divi­sion.

The city side haven’t lost since go­ing down 3- 2 at a strengthened Hol­beach United Re­serves team on Oc­to­ber 10, 2015.

They are six games un­beaten this sea­son af­ter last week­end’s 3-1 win at Ket­ton lifted them to sec­ond place in the ta­ble, just be­hin­dreign­ing cham­pi­ons Moul­ton Har­rox on goal dif­fer­ence.

It’s been a de­cent start for a team with am­bi­tions of pro­mo­tion­totheUnit­edCoun­ties League­and­man­agerJonHar­ri­son has is­sued a warn­ing to the rest of the divi­sion.

“We haven’t played well yet this sea­son,” Har­ri­son ad­mit­ted. “We’ve played well in patches and there have been signs that we are get­ting close to our best, but we are capa- ble of much more than we’ve shown so far.

“The long un­beaten run shows how resilient we are though. We are hard to beat even when we’re not play­ing well and that’s the sign of a good side.”

Tom Ran­dall (2) and Dan Fountain scored the goals at Ket­ton, but goal­keeper Ross In­gram was Har­ri­son’s hero for sav­ing a penalty when the score was 2-1.

“That save was key,” Har­ri­son ad­mit­ted. “We had been cruis­ing­for­mostofthe­match, but con­ced­ing a goal then would have made life dif­fi­cult for us.

“Rosshas­been­play­ingvery wellthissea­son­so­hedeserved his mo­ment of glory.”

Nether­ton host Deep­ing Rangers Re­serves at The Grange this Satur­day.

Lead­ers Moul­ton are at Crow­land.
