Two wins from their final three games will see Moulton Harrox crowned Peterborough League Premier Division champions.

Harrox kept pace with reigning title holders Uppingham Town after a vital round of midweek matches on Tuesday night.

The two sides remain locked on points at the top of the table but Moulton have two matches in hand on their Rutland rivals.

Harrox had an excellent 4-1 away win at Leverington on Tuesday while Uppingham were 3-2 victors at fourth-placed Stanground Sports.

Two goals inside the opening 20 minutes from Harry Machin and Dec Earth put Moulton in control of the contest.

Although Leveringtion halved the deficit, Earth added a third on the stroke of half-time before completing his hat-trick after the break.

Moulton face a tricky trip to Whittlesey Reserves on Saturday before a derby duel at home to Crowland Town on Tuesday night.

Crowland climbed into third place after an epic midweek match with Tydd where they ran out 6-5 winners. Marley Hamilton hit a hat-trick for Tydd with Kelton Stringer and Charlie Minchella also netting.

Warboys' hopes of catching either Uppingham or Moulton Harrox were virtually ended after a 2-2 draw at Deeping Rangers Reserves on Tuesday night with Ben Leisner netting the equaliser for the Clarets.

Moulton had beaten the Witches in another crunch clash on Saturday with goals from Earth and Nathan Smith securing a 2-1 success.

Whaplode Drove Rovers ended their campaign on a high after clinching promotion on Saturday.

They are assured of a top two finish in Divison Two after a 2-0 away success at Oakham United Reserves in their final game of the campaign.

William Knight put Rovers ahead just before the half-hour mark with Kane Gilbert's goal sealing their success with 15 minutes remaining.

With Warboys Reserves and Whittlesey Development both dropping points on Saturday, Drove cannot be caught by any of the chasing pack.

Saturday's success did also move them to the top of the table but Peterborough Rangers are just a point behind and have two matches of their season remaining.

Moulton Harrox Reserves remain in the driving seat for the Division Four title after a 4-2 away success at Elsea Park Eagles.

Laurence Price scored twice with Martin Sandall and Cameron Bedden also bagging the goals in a crucial away win.

Moulton are now level on points with league leaders Stamford AFC Reserves but have two matches in hand on the Daniels who defeated third-placed Peterborough City on Saturday.

South Lincs Swifts are in fourth place after a 2-1 win at Leverington A following goals from Jack Watson and Tyriece Buffong.

Jay Handley hit two of the goals for Deeping United Development in their 3-0 away win at Stanground Sports Reserves with Winston Bayole also on target.
