Peterborough Northern Star 1 Eynesbury Rovers 3
A ROVERS side with a number of Peterborough-based players came away victorious from previously-unbeaten PNS.
Joint-boss Al Lenihan, who has been quietly getting on with the job of shaping his Rovers team, motivated his troops and watched them demolish PNS with some classy football.

Delighted joint-manager Pat O'Keeffe said: "It was no more than our efforts deserved and we have earned our position of third in the league."
It took Eynesbury just 15 minutes to breach the hosts' defence with Dwayne Rankin and Jamie Graham combining down the left flank and to feed the unmarked Robbie Osker.

Rovers had started brightly with Graham, Rankin and Brett Bellamy all having attempts on goal. Peterborough rarely threatened and Dave Beeny was never troubled in the visitors' goal during the first period.
Three minutes into the second half Eynesbury doubled their advantage when Graham pounced on a poor back pass and clipped the ball beyond Chris Benton.
Chasing the game, PNS upped the tempo and brought the first serious save from Beeny, when he dived at the feet of Carl Harper.
The game swung from end to end as Graham forced two more saves from the overworked Benton, whilst Chris Plummer saw his header hooked clear by Rovers defender Sam Kingston.
Eynesbury brought on Chris Brown and Jon Harrison and within three minutes the two substitutes combined for Harrison to fire a low first time shot beyond Benson and into the bottom corner of the net.
Karl Gibbs rattled the Eynesbury woodwork before Ben Daly brought down Carl Harper to concede a penalty that was dispatched by Mark Paul.
Rovers visit Cornard United in the FA Vase on Saturday.
