The Eynesbury Rovers juggernaut rolled on last night.

Mark Ducket’s side reeled off an 11th win in their last dozen United Counties League Premier Division games when beating 10-man Cogenhoe at Hall Road.

Tom Coles fired Eynesbury ahead after 18 minutes before Craig Smith doubled their advantage with a penalty 10 minutes later.

Visiting player Harry Osborne was dismissed for handling a Rhys Thorpe lob on the goal-line, and top-scorer Smith made no mistake from the spot.

Rovers struck again on the hour through Allan Owen, their weekend match-winner against table-toppers Peterborough Sports.

The success against Cogenhoe keeps Eynesbury in second spot, three points behind the leaders, who also won last night.

Huntingdon remain bottom of the Premier Division after being thumped 8-1 at Wisbech last night.

Addie Staffieri hit the Town goal midway through the first half on a night to forget for Bob Warby’s side.

New boss Chris Hyem suffered the first defeat of his Godmanchester Rovers reign last night.

The Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division side were beaten 4-3 on penalties at First Division outfit Team Bury in the opening round of the League Challenge Cup following a goalless deadlock.

Arran Mackay and Calum Gawthrope both missed their spot-kicks as Rovers bowed out.
