FIVE-STAR Eynesbury Rovers racked up the heaviest win of their UCL Division One campaign at the weekend as they trounced bottom side Buckingham Town 5-0 away from home.

Lee Bassett and Craig Lanham both scored twice, with Ian Dawkes coming off the bench to score Rovers’ fifth deep into stoppage time.

Boss Matt Plumb said: “It was a good performance against a Buckingham side who had picked up in recent weeks.

“They are bottom, but had gained eight points from their four games prior to playing us and we gave them a good trouncing.

“It has been coming and the most important thing for me is that we’re also looking solid at the back.

“We have recorded five clean sheets out of our last seven games.”

Eynesbury came close to scoring in the second minute, but Lanham’s header from a Scott Kingsbury corner was inches wide.

Matt Bines in the Buckingham goal did well to palm away a Darren Woodend effort, whilst he also denied Bassett from the edge of the penalty area.

Rovers took the lead in the 24th minute when Bassett’s 25-yard strike flew into the top corner, giving Bines no chance.

The hosts’ only shot on target was a long range strike by Joel McCormick but it was easily held by Marcin Lubniewski.

In the 34th minute, Eynesbury doubled their advantage, when a short corner kick was delivered into the penalty area for Lanham to fire home with a close range shot.

Buckingham’s best spell of the match came in the opening eight minutes of the second half.

Pat Diamond’s low shot was gathered by Lubniewski before Rovers’ keeper had to be at his best to tip Ashley Farmer’s shot over the bar.

However, two Eynesbury goals within the space of three minutes effectively clinched the points.

In the 54th minute, Bassett chased a long clearance by Lubniewski and a defensive mix up allowed him to slip between two defenders and poke the ball home.

Two minutes later another Rovers corner led to Gavin Batt’s shot being diverted past Bines by Lanham.

Eynesbury did have a scare in the 65th minute when Kyle Stimpson’s shot rebounded off the base of the post.

And Lubniewski then produced a fine one-handed save 10 minutes later to again deny Stimpson.

However, it was the visitors that had the final say when sub Dawkes fired home a shot from 18 yards four minutes into stoppage time.

Fifth-placed Eynesbury host Northampton Sileby Rangers – who are seventh - this weekend.
