Division One Eynesbury Rovers 2 Higham Town 3
ROVERS put in a disappointing performance to lose 3-2 at home to Higham Town.
Higham, exacting revenge for their defeat at the hands of Eynesbury earlier in the season, opened the scoring in the 18th minute.
Higham held their advantage until 15 minutes into the second half when Eynesbury's Carl Albone levelled the score off a pass from Craig Smith.
Higham restored their lead with 15 minutes to play before finding the net again 10 minutes later.
'Bury managed to pull one back through Peter Collins - his 21st goal of the season - off a Mark Scotcher cross but Higham held on to take the points.
Manager Dean Shipp, who stood in for injured keeper Ben Houseago, said of his team's performance: "We underperformed all afternoon and can't take much from the game.
"We should have made ground on the teams above us but we once more lost points against a bottom-of-the-table team.
"On a positive note, though, we're in the fray at the top-end, which is where we'd hoped to be at this stage in the season."
Huntingdon Town 1 Whitworths 0
AN improving Huntingdon side thwarted Whitworths' title bid by subjecting them to a 1-0 defeat at Jubilee Park.
Hot-shot Paul Bass put the home side ahead after 36 minutes with what proved to be the only goal of the game, Carl Foreman setting it up.
Huntingdon played a controlled game thereafter, limiting Whitworth's chances to protect their lead.
Huntingdon continue their bid for a mid-table finish with promise whilst Whitworths look set to move only downwards after their sixth game without a win.
Huntingdon manager Mick Hunt said of the performance: "We played a tight game that didn't allow room for Whitworth to play the stylish football we know they can. Our youthfulness and endeavour payed dividends and we are pleased with the win.
