Eynesbury still in with a shout for fourth

Rovers hit Potton for six ahead of final weekend of the season

EYNESBURY ROVERS still have an outside chance of finishing fourth in UCL Division One - but need results to go for them this weekend.

Matt Plumb takes his side, currently in sixth, to Northampton Sileby Rangers for their final league fixture on Saturday.

To finish fourth they would need Bugbrooke to take a point from fourth-placed Huntingdon while Eynesbury, who have a far better goal difference than Huntingdon, need to win by three clear goals to overhaul fourth-placed Olney, who have completed their fixtures.

Although they look more than able to keep their end of the bargain after racking up six without reply against Potton at Hall Road on Easter Monday - their biggest win of the campaign.

Lee Bassett opened the scoring 10 minutes in, with Shane Fox doubling Rovers advantage after 31 minutes.

Fox scored his second goal four minutes into the second half before one time Potton man Ben Cole made it four after 69 minutes.
