Shaw Lane AFC returned to the top of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division South table on Tuesday night after an emphatic 6-0 win at Ashby Avenue against Lincoln United.

A brace of Ryan Qualter headers after 7 and 16 minutes had the high-flying visitors firmly in command.

Seven minutes into the second half, Gavin Allott made it 3-0.

United had a chance to get back into the game soon afterwards, but Danny Brooks missed from the penalty spot.

He was punished further just before the hour-mark when Gary Burnett added Shaw Lane`s fourth and, despite the home side having two efforts cleared off the line, the visitors wrapped up a convincing win with a second for Allott after 64 minutes and then Spencer Harris 5 minutes later.

The only game in the First Division North on Tuesday saw Ramsbottom United remain a point in front of Droylsden in mid-table after the sides shared a 1-1 Butcher`s Arms draw.

Rammy led through Grant Spencer`s goal 8 minutes before the break.

But Jamie Frost`s penalty 20 minutes from time salvaged a draw for the Bloods.
