Grantham kept the pressure on a created a number of chances for striker Manning and Warren. Just before the break Grantham increased their lead when Thorngate- Vega receive a ball inbetween the lines and threaded the ball through for Manning to run onto and score to double Grantham's lead. Into the 2nd half and Grantham continued where they left off and scored a thrid when a corner from Thorngate- Vega was volleyed in at the back post by centre half Burnett for his first goal of the season.
