UCL Division One ---

Eynesbury Rovers 3-1 Rushden & Higham United ---

GAVIN Batt served up the winner against his former team as Matt Plumb's charges finally rediscovered their early season form.

Rovers were cruising at the top of the league in October but have dropped ten points in their last six games as injury problems have struck, so needed a victory to reignite their season.

Plumb said: "That win was just what the doctor ordered.

"The three points were badly needed but the best thing was the performance on the day: it was equal to anything we have done this season.

"We had two new players in the line up and a couple back from injury so the increased competition for places should give us more of an edge on the park."

Rovers moved the ball well and created numerous chances, hitting the frame of the goal on at least three occasions.

Batt set up Adam Boothby on thirteen minutes who rounded the keeper before rolling it home. However, Rovers' lead was short-lived as Rushden gained parity within a minute through Craig Harrower.

Ross West was denied by the woodwork before restoring the Rovers lead on the half-hour. Rovers created hatful of chances in the second half before Batt nodded home to complete the scoring.

Rovers could have had more, with substitute debutant Richard Kays and Morris again going close.
