United Counties League Division One
Burton Park Wanderers 1 Huntingdon Town 2
ANOTHER late, late, show from Huntingdon Town earned them three points at Burton - but manager Darren Young was far from happy.
The boss criticised his team and admitted they had been fortunate to take all three points.
"A draw probably would have been a fair result," he said. "But Burton paid for not taking their chances."
Two goals inside the final five minutes from Richard Moore and Lee Garvie secured the win after Wanderers had dominated from the off.

The hosts scored on the stroke of half time and a verbal volley from Young at the break eventually saw an improvement in the Town performance.
The introduction of Nicky Young helped Huntingdon and Garvie's late winner put the visitors into second.
Young added: "I felt sorry for the home side in a way but they didn't kill us off.
