Rugby Town netted another four goals to beat mid-table Sleaford Town 4-0 at Butlin Road on Saturday. They've now scored four goals in each of their last five victories.

Danico Johnson put Valley ahead within five minutes, with Lewis Rankin adding the next nearing the half-hour mark. Richard Blythe made it 3-0 in this comfortable win, which lifts Rugby into second in the UCL Premier Division and Fazel Koriya came off the bench for the last in stoppage time from the penalty spot.
