Only bottom-placed Irchester have conceded more goals than Huntingdon and manager Paul Swannell bemoaned his side's defensive errors.

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.
