Nottingham Lions’ lead at the top of the table was cut to just 3 points after they were sensationally beaten 1-4 at home by Widnes Wild on Sunday.

The Wild led throughout and the Lions’ only goal of the game came in the 57th minute. The Lions outshot their visitors 57 to 44 but got into penalty trouble in the latter stages once it was obvious that the game was slipping away from them.

Second place Deeside Dragons took full advantage to close the gap on the leaders with a 4-6 win away at Altrincham Aces.

In the only other Laidler game of the weekend, Blackburn Eagles beat bottom club Bradford Bulldogs 7-4 on Saturday to give them a record of 6 wins from their first 9 games
