Histon end long wait for a home win by beating Carlton Town in Northern Premier League
Histon clinched a first home win in two years to boost their prospects of beating the drop from the Northern Premier League, Midlands Division with a 2-0 victory over Carlton Town last Saturday.
It looked a tough task for the Stutes in the home clash against a side fighting for a play-off place, but they produced a dominant display.
The deadlock was broken in the 64th minute, when Ed Rolph nodded in a corner from the left.
Histon doubled their lead in the 70th minute, when good work by Rhys Thorpe led to an onrushing Junior Muyembe volleying home from the edge of the box.
The win moved Histon off the bottom of the table, and just three behind Wisbech Town.
But the Stutes were unable to follow it up in midweek as they lost 1-0 to promotion-chasing Stamford on Tuesday night.
Jonathan Margetts got the only goal of the game in the 28th minute.
However, it was another good display from Histon, with Rolph and Luke Lindsay having second-half efforts well saved by the keeper.
Histon's tricky run continues as they host leaders Ilkeston Town this Saturday (February 12).
