Huntingdon drew a blank on home turf for the first time in six years when slumping to defeat last Saturday.

Stags were brushed aside 28-0 by relegation battlers Market Rasen & Louth in a Midlands Division One East clash moved to the second-team pitch at the Racecourse due to standing water rendering their regular arena unplayable.

They soon found themselves trailing to a converted try and two further seven-pointers arrived in the space of five minutes just before the break.

Sixth-placed Stags were left with a mountain to climb merely to restore some pride and even that proved beyond them.

The loss of Seth Muggeridge, Tad Chapman and Craig Turner to game-ending injuries certainly didn’t help matters while a fourth converted try from the visitors merely rubbed salt into some soggy Stags wounds.
