St Neots Town continued their resurgence yesterday with a second successive Southern League Division One Central success.
Tommy Boxer's first goal for Saints earned a 1-0 triumph against Didcot Town at the Premier Plus Stadium.
The skipper delivered the knockout blow on the stroke of half-time when firing through a crowd of players after a cross was cleared into his path.
And that was enough to ensure Barry Corr's men followed up a midweek victory against Coleshill with another three points.
But there is no sign of the gloom lifting for St Ives Town as they remain marooned in the Southern League Premier Division Central drop-zone.

The damage was done by visiting frontman Jonathan Edwards who hit a second-half hat-trick at Westwood Road and also saw another effort, which appeared to cross the line after slamming against the underside of the bar, not given.

A two-month run without a victory for Godmanchester Rovers came to a spectacular end.
Recent signing Luke Lindsay hit a hat-trick to lead the locals to a 4-3 success against Stanway Rovers in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division.
Ollie Drake's men fell two goals adrift in the first half before Lindsay and Micky Hyem pulled them level, but they were again trailing by the break.
Lindsay then completed a second-half turnaround by equalising before hitting the winner.
Huntingdon Town picked up a welcome point in Division One of the United Counties League.
