Cleethorpes Town's climb continues with a narrow victory
ANDY Liddle's Cleethorpes Town followed up their derby win over Grimsby Borough with a 3-2 home victory against Rossington Main.
Clee – who paraded their new Grimsby Telegraph sponsored shirts – moved up to fourth in the Northern Counties East League Division One table with the win at the Bradley Community Stadium.
The home side started as they intended to go on, constantly pressurising Rossington, allowing them no breathing space whatsoever.
However, it was Rossington who went ahead when midfielder Green made a good run before threading the ball through to Thorton.

His shot was saved, but Clee weren't ready for the rebound and Sidebottom put the visitors ahead in the eighth minute.
Clee hit back in the 26th minute when, despite a poor corner, the ball fell to Luke Mascall and his shot took a deflection on its way in to make it 1-1.
Sidebottom scored again for the away side with around half an hour gone. Liddle's Owls had failed to produce much going forward after their goal, and they were punished with a stinging shot into the bottom corner.
Clee Town had a fantastic chance to draw level on 39 minutes.
Some excellent link-up play between Hanslip, Mark Cooper and Oglesby opened up the defence, but Oglesby's shot was brilliantly saved by Wildey.
Just before half-time, Cooper fired home to level.
Clee looked brighter after the break, but Rossington had the better chances.
A curling shot from Tunney struck the post as the visitors threatened.
But it was the Owls who had the last laugh on 66 minutes.
Lee Stephenson sent the ball deep into the box and Mascall turned it in to give Clee the lead.
In the latter stages, Ricky Belding produced some good crosses into the box, but no one was there to convert.
Defensively, towards the end, the home side were solid and Clee held on for a 3-2 win.
Cleethorpes Town's next game is on Saturday, away at Yorkshire Amateur (3pm).
