HUNTINGDON Town were doubled by Wootton Blue Cross on Saturday as they continued to languish second from bottom of the table.

Wootton, who hammered Huntingdon 5-1 at Jubilee Park in December, controlled the game but went in goalless at half time.

Grant Williams broke the deadlock after 49 minutes, and two minutes later Ben Baines sealed the win for the hosts and ensured Huntingdon have had just one win in their last 10 games.

Huntingdon Town manager Martyn Ray said: "It wasn't very good at all. The first half we played well against the wind but we weren't good enough in the second.

"We didn't deserve to win the game, we had a couple of good chances and maybe enough for a point but not the three. I was very disappointed with the performance, I'm not happy.

"I thought we would be OK in the second half but some of us didn't chase the game and as they started pushing forward we broke down. We didn't press enough and it was a poor performance overall.

"I had to field a weakened side as some players let me down and didn't turn up. One lad called me 45 minutes before kick off and said he couldn't make it and you can't find another player that quickly so there's nothing I can do about that.

"I'm still optimistic about the league as there are lots of games still to play, but I keep saying we will start winning every week and we keep losing so we are running out of games. We are not a bottom-of-the-table side though the table doesn't lie so hopefully we can pick up and come good soon."

Huntingdon Town next play second-placed Northampton ON Chenecks on Saturday before they travel to fellow relegation strugglers Burton Park Wanderers, who sit just one point above them in the table.
