Eynesbury’s unbeaten sequence of 14 matches came to an end at Eslaforde Park, where three goals in 30 minutes settled the outcome.

Sleaford took a seventh minute lead after a fine save by Andrew Wale had given them a corner. Adam Weston headed home but Eynesbury almost equalised soon after, keeper Phil McGann producing a double save to deny Tom Coles and then Lee Bassett

Goal number two came from Scott Coupland and with 29 minutes gone Harry Millard broke clear from halfway to fire past Wale for 3-0.

McGann denied Coles, Bassett and Shane Fox and in the second half as Rovers continued to press, two Bassett headers were well held while Coles and Fox were off target with further attempts.

The lone consolation came on 69 minutes when Alex Marsh headed home a Stephen Smith free-kick, but McGann made a cracking save to tip over Fox’s 18-yard belter and further efforts from Marsh and Bassett failed to alter the scoreline.
