Whitworths 4 Huntingdon Town 1
A TOUGH trip to the league leaders saw Town come away pointless as defensive frailties and poor away form showed through again.
Only bottom-placed Irchester have conceded more goals than Huntingdon and manager Paul Swannell bemoaned his side's defensive errors.

He said: "It's no good to keep playing good football but concede four goals every week. The Whitworths manager said we had played some of the best football he has seen from a visiting team but that's cold comfort really.
"We've got a young side and they need to show a bit more confidence at the back to combat the threat teams pose."

The home side took the lead midway through the first half through Ben Holley, who doubled his tally 15 minutes later with a header that may have been ruled out for climbing but the referee allowed the goal to stand.
Town substitute Alyou Coaney pulled a goal back just before the interval but two further second-half goals - including Holley's hat-trick strike - settled the contest, leaving Huntingdon with just one away point all season.
