It was a case of high-fives all round for Godmanchester Rovers last Saturday.

Ollie Drake's men reeled off their fifth consecutive Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division victory by blowing away Cambridgeshire rivals Ely City by a 5-1 scoreline at the David Wilson Homes Ground.

A brace from Tom Spark put Rovers in command and James Hall effectively sealed the points when adding a third goal five minutes before the break.

Young prospect Gianni Cantone got in on the act with a first senior goal in the second half before free-kick maestro Ross Munro added another fine effort to his collection.

The only blot on an otherwise exemplary Rovers copybook was the concession of a late consolation goal to a depleted City side who were without a recognised goalkeeper.

Drake admitted: "It's very annoying that we ruined a perfect performance by conceding a late goal.

"We were excellent in the first half and that set us up to win the game.

You may also want to watch:

"We took our foot off the pedal at times in the second half, but we were always very comfortable and added a couple more goals.

"It was particularly pleasing for young Gianni to get one of them and to have three Under 18 lads involved in the squad again.

"We're enjoying a great run at the moment, but we have tough tests ahead which will tell us more about where we are."

Rovers' hot streak launched them into third place ahead of a trip to Haverhill Rovers tonight (Tuesday).

Drake's men head to Suffolk in search of revenge for a 2-0 home defeat at the hands of the same opponents back in August.

Another tough test awaits this Saturday with a visit to a Wroxham side expected to challenge for the title.

The Norfolk club feature former Premier League striker Grant Holt and another ex-Norwich City man, Simon Lappin, in their squad.
