Managerless Eynesbury produced a rousing fightback to collect a second successive United Counties League Premier Division success yesterday.

Top-scorer Lee Bassett hit a 70th minute leveller and an 84th minute winner as Rovers triumphed 3-2 at Northampton Spencer.

They had earlier hit the front courtesy of a Matty Bannister goal eight minutes before the break, but they could only preserve their advantage for five minutes.

Spencer, the reigning Division One champions, then hit the front from the penalty spot 10 minutes into the second period, but Bassett inspired a turnaround.

Huntingdon remain a point adrift at the bottom of the Premier Division standings after being pipped by Cogenhoe at Jubilee Park.
