Spalding United returned to winning ways last night when they hammered Carlton Town 5-2 in the First Round of the Integro League Cup.
Boss Dave Frecklington was particularly pleased with the result following last Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at table-toppers Newcastle Town.
He said: “It was a good response after Saturday’s result when we played well for half an hour but then took our foot off the gas.
“There were a few home-truths that came out in the changing room after the final whistle.
“But last night our work rate improved and there was a good response all round.”
This Saturday the Tulips take on twelfth-placed Stocksbridge Park Steels who sit 10 points adrift of third-in-the-table Spalding.
