St Neots Town surrendered their unbeaten Southern League Premier Division away record when tumbling to a Tuesday night defeat at Dunstable.

The Saints also slipped back into the bottom half of the standings after going down 3-0 in Bedfordshire against a side featuring their former goalkeeper Paul Bastock.

The veteran shot-stopper was relatively untroubled as St Neots went down with a whimper after falling behind midway through the opening half.

Two goals in the space of three second-half minutes then sealed their fate before Bastock denied top-scorer Tom Meechan a late consolation by keeping out a fiercely-hit volley.

St Neots host Welsh side Merthyr at the Premier Plus Stadium this Saturday.
