Three goals in the closing stages of this derby contest gave the Cuckoos the points at Carters Park.

Ian Edge opened the scoring for Yaxley after 74 minutes with a header, but the outcome remained in the balance until the last few minutes.

Ricky Hailstone netted the Cuckoos' second goal with a free kick after 87 minutes and Dominic Henson completed the scoring in the final minute of the match, pouncing to score after Dan Fountain's effort rebounded off the post.
