Market Rasen Town upset the odds to hold higher-division opponents in knockout competition on Saturday,

Town, who sit fifth in East Lincs Combination Division Three, hosted Division Two title-chasers Alford Town at Rase Park in the Town Trophy for only their second match in a month.

After a goalless first half, Rasen’s leading scorer Kerim Djerbi put the home side in front just five minutes after the break with his 16th goal of the campaign.
