Bermuda's English Professional Footballers Round Up
Reggie Lambe and his Cambridge United teammates settled for a share of the spoils against Tranemre Rovers, as a goalless draw extended their unbeaten run at the Abbey Stadium to four games.
With Lambe entering the game in the 63rd minute Cambridge United never really threatened at all after the break and in the end settled for a deserved draw that ensured they move on to three away consecutive games in League Two having with a seven point gap between themselves and the bottom two.
An Ivan Toney goal in the second half was enough to earn Peterborough United all three points at the Kassam Stadium this afternoon. In the tightest of games a precise finish from Toney was enough to push Peterborough back towards the play-offs while ending United's five game unbeaten run.
Milan Butterfield and his Kidderminster Football Club teammates lost out to the odd goal in three as York City again tasted triumph at Aggborough Stadium with a 2-1 victory.
The home side switched off from two throw-ins, one in each half and were punished in spectacular fashion as City rifled in two superb finishes courtesy of Kallum Griffiths and Scott Burgess.
In between, Joe Ironside's ninth goal of the season had levelled things up but, going behind for the second time on the day, Kidderminster were unable to muster a second response.
