Home comforts are still in short supply for St Neots Town.
A 3-1 reverse at the hands of title-chasers Redditch yesterday means Saints have lost exactly half of their 18 home fixtures in the Southern League Premier Division so far this term. They also bowed out of three cup competitions at the Premier Plus Stadium.
Just as they had done last Tuesday, when succumbing to Hitchin 2-1, Saints struck first yesterday against promotion-chasing opponents.
Adam Tann headed his first league goal of the season midway through the first half after being picked out by a delivery from Josh Dawkin.
The lead proved short-lived as Redditch levelled within seven minutes and hit the front four minutes after that.

Drew Roberts was denied by the crossbar as St Neots came within a whisker of a second-half leveller before the visitors sealed victory with seven minutes to go.
The latest reverse leaves Saints 10 points above the Premier Division relegation zone, but they have played considerably more matches than most of the eight teams currently below them.
