HUNTINGDON Town were defeated for the first time in eight games by Daventry United at Jubilee Park.

A strengthened Daventry continued their push for promotion with a one-nil win.

Joel Young's goal six minutes before the break was enough to ensure United took the points and did the double over Huntingdon.
