Manager Darren Young praised his side's efforts as they fought to retain their current fine run after a controversial refereeing decision saw midfielder Brett Bellamey dismissed after just 20 minutes.

Young ordered his troops into a 3-4-2 formation and Town continued to dominate, culminating in Coaney's 20-yard drive into the top corner on the half hour.

It was more of the same as the second half started, with Huntingdon working as one to keep a tight grip on the game.

Town always looked dangerous with Eddie Mills and Adam Taylor posing a real threat and both went close before Coaney found room 18 yards out to crash his and Town's second into the net with 15 minutes left.

Young said: "We felt hard done by the referee over Brett's dismissal - I felt the first booking was very harsh.

"The most important thing is the win, which lifts us into equal second place in the league, was a result of total teamwork and a credit to everyone"
