Cambridge’s perfect home record in the Conference Premier came to an end last night with defeat to Grimsby at the Abbey stadium. The 2-1 loss ended their superb run of 12 wins out of 12 in the league at home but also stopped Richard Money’s men from moving level on points with league leaders Luton. The surprise win for Grimsby has seen them move up one place to fourth and further cement a play-off spot.
Nuneaton were the other big movers after last night’s round of fixtures, jumping ahead of Town and Kidderminster. Their 2-1 victory at home to Aldershot has left them outside the playoffs only on goal difference.
Elsewhere, a headed goal from Josh Gowling was enough to rescue a point for playoff hopefuls Kidderminster as they drew 1-1 away at Hereford. Hereford dominated for much of the game but could not hold onto their one goal lead.
Wrexham are now just five points off the playoff places after their 2-0 win over Tamworth. 10 points out of a possible 12 in their last four outings have revived their chase to reach the playoffs.
There was no luck for Braintree whose home fixture with Macclesfield was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. Alan Devonshire’s side our going to eventually suffer from a real backlog of fixtures; the game last night was their fourth home game in a row to be cancelled.
