Eynesbury Rovers might not be challenging to win the United Counties League Premier Division crown themselves, but they’re enjoying upsetting the contenders.
Mark Ducket’s side were 1-0 winners against Holbeach at Hall Road yesterday – an outcome which boosted their bid for a third successive top-six finish, but almost certainly ended their opponents’ hopes of the title.
Danny Draper headed the only goal in the second minute of stoppage time at the end of the first half. He pounced from close range after the visiting defence failed to deal with a Matt Miles free kick.
Draper and Tricks missed good chances to extend the lead in the second half, but one goal proved enough to earn Rovers’ victory in their fourth game in a week. They had drawn 0-0 with Premier Division leaders Yaxley on Thursday and are now unbeaten in seven games in all competitions.
Huntingdon Town snapped a miserable United Counties League Division One run yesterday.
Jimmy Brattan’s side triumphed for the first time in 11 games when winning 3-1 at Rushden & Higham.
Strike ace Corey Kingston was a key figure, scoring two of Town’s goals and also earning the penalty which clinched their welcome success.
Kingston’s opener was cancelled out by the hosts in the opening period, but he restored the advantage soon after the break.
Jake Waterworth then did the honours from the spot after Kingston was brought down by a defender who was sent off.
Godmanchester Rovers recorded a seventh successive Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division victory yesterday.
Leading scorer Jack Chandler and captain Micky Hyem hit the goals in a 2-0 victory against Gorleston at the David Wilson Homes Ground.
Ollie Drake’s men remain fourth.
