Mark Waters levelled for the Badgers in a competitive game before 18-year-old Daniel Fletcher bagged the winner for Staveley 12 minutes from time. Scott’s strike - in front of a home crowd of 203 - means him (11), Kieran Watson (20) and Courtney Hastings (19) have contributed 50 goals for the Trojans so far this season.

The win ended a sequence of three NCEL Premier games without victory for Brett Marshall’s men who entertain title hopefuls Worksop Town next.

Tigers top the table going in to Wednesday’s clash in North Derbyshire after a 2-2 draw at struggling Brigg Town on Saturday (February 13).
