Eynesbury stretched their United Counties League Premier Division winning run to four matches with an away triumph today.

Rovers triumphed 3-0 at Harborough Town thanks to a hat-trick from in-form Matty Bannister to climb into the top eight in the standings - their highest league position of the season.

Bannister struck three times in the space of 16 first-half minutes as new boss Mark Ducket celebrated a second successive victory since taking charge - although it was the first he actually witnessed after missing a midweek win at Yaxley.

Huntingdon remain six points adrift at the bottom of the Premier Division after being beaten by the Peterborough Northern Star side of former boss Seb Hayes.

Hayden Bream, an ex-St Ives Town player, hit the only goal from the penalty spot after 36 minutes at Jubilee Park.
