There are always ups and downs in football.
Spalding United have experienced both over the last two months.
The Tulips hit the depths in November after a super start to the season.
They couldn’t post a point on the board during what turned out to be a dark month for Dave Frecklington’s men.
How things have changed.
Yesterday Spalding racked up their four consecutive win of December and now sit second in the League only a point behind leaders Shaw Lane.
There is every chance they will make it five on the spin when they travel to lowly Carlton Town on Thursday.
As we hit the halfway mark of the campaign the play-off positions are beginning to take shape.
If the Tulips can avoid any further blips they are likely candidates to stay in the top four and possibly press for that number one spot.
