Spalding United and Newcastle Town should be getting to know each other rather well.
They met for the second successive Saturday in a game that could well have a bearing on the promotion places.
Newcastle came out on top thanks to a brace of spot kicks from Lee Cropper after the Tulips had taken the lead on 12 minutes through Cenk Acar.
Defeat leaves Dave Frecklington’s men in third spot with a game in hand over table-toppers Newcastle.
The Tulips travel to Carlton Town tomorrow evening in the First Round of the NPL Integro League Cup
