Halstead keep up the pressure with fifth win in a row
Halstead Town kept up the pressure on the Thurlow Nunn League division one leaders with a 4-1 win at bottom side Needham Market Reserves.
Town extended their winning run in the league to five games to stay in second place, just a single point behind frontrunners Whitton United.
The central defensive partnership of Ash Baptiste and Lewis Cunliffe were both on the scoresheet, while Jordan Palmer made it 3-0 and Nick Miller returned from a knee injury to fire Halstead into a 4-0 lead before the hosts grabbed a late consolation.
Halstead are due to travel to Cornard United in the league, looking to make it six wins in a row, on Tuesday.
