Kidsgrove's hopes of maintaining their Evo-Stik League status suffered a huge setback with a home defeat to fellow strugglers Lincoln United. Once more, Kidsgrove had the better of the overall play, but failed to make this count, hitting the woodwork twice and falling to a late winner.
Wayne Corden equalised early in the second half after Daniel Brooks had given the visitors the lead from the penalty spot. Lincoln then took all the points courtesy of an 87th minute winner from Joshua Bowden.
While results on the pitch were somewhat of a mixed bag over the festive period, Kidsgrove did have something to celebrate as the amount raised through Easyfundraising passed the £100 mark just before the end of December.
