Leon Lobjoit has most definitely found a hot-steak of form as he hit another three to send Eynesbury Rovers to victory at Long Buckby.

He had scored four in midweek as they beat Biggleswade United 9-2 and his treble in the United Counties League Premier Division South match at Station Road, coupled with Sam Olawale's second goal for the club in his first start, gave Rovers a 4-1 and kept them third in the table.

All four goals came in a remarkable eight-minute spell starting on 20 minutes.

Jordan Brown twice and Kye Andrews got the assists for Lobjoit's treble with the former St Neots Town striker was the one to set up Olawale's goal.

The score could have been greater but for Scott Martin in the Buckby goal as he pulled off saves to deny Cameron Hyde, Brown and Lobjoit.

Those chances dried up slightly in the second period and the hosts pulled one back from the penalty spot after a handball on 66 minutes, Sam Lockley getting the goal.

Huntingdon Town conceded their first goals in the Eastern Counties League First Division North but remain unbeaten after a 2-2 draw at home to Diss Town.

The unbeaten hosts took control after half-time with goals from their twin towers in the centre of defence, Luke Carnell and Ben Brown, proving to be a thorn in Saints' side in both defence and attack.

Carnell got the first in the opening minutes of the half with a header from a free-kick and another set-piece was headed back across goal by the defender for Jensen Wright to crash home an unstoppable shot on 73 minutes.
