Lincoln United 0-2 Stocksbridge Park Steels

Stocksbridge Park Steels extensively increased their play-offs hopes with an exceptional victory at rivals Lincoln United.

Chris Hilton’s men now travel to AFC Rushden & Diamonds on Tuesday night with the knowledge that a win will lift them into the top five.

Young Ben Rhodes struck an exceptional volley to place the Steels in front during the first half.

Even though Lincoln were pushing for an equaliser, Stocksbridge went close through Scott Ruthven and Harrison Biggins.

The points were eventually sealed in the final minute when star man Brodie Litchfield raced through and showed great composure to score.
