Newport Pagnell Town tasted back-to-back defeats this week, leaving them nervously looking over their shoulders in the UCL Premier Division.

An under-strength Swans side travelled to the Fenland Stadium on Saturday to take on Wisbech Town.

After a bizarre opener from the home side, which took a number of deflections on the way in, Dan Silver equalised for Newport.

But a Wisbech strike just before half time game them a 2-1 lead at the break.

They doubled their advantage in the second half, with it securing all three points.

Darren Lynch’s men didn’t have long to wait before their next game though, taking on Cogenhoe at Willen Road on Tuesday night.

But they suffered an equally disappointing result. After falling behind halfway through the first half, a stoppage time goal left them facing an uphill challenge in the second 45 minutes. The visitors added two more in the second half though and left Newport with a 4-0 defeat.

The league table doesn’t make for pleasant reading, with Newport sitting 17th of 19 teams, with five points after eight games.

Stony Stratford were knocked out of the Spartan South Midlands Division One Cup after a 4-2 extra time defeat at the hands of Risborough Rangers.

New Bradwell St Peter climbed up to ninth in Division Two after a 2-0 win over neighbours Old Bradwell. Goals from Frederick Yinka-Kehinde and Daniel Bevis gave St Peter the win. Wolverton Town climbed to seventh, winning 3-0 against Totternhoe, courtesy of goals from Peter Geyton, Michael Rudniak, Jamie Risebrow.
