Fuming Eynesbury chief Martin Field read the riot act to his Rovers players following an ‘embarrassing’ result and performance on Saturday.

Rovers were beaten 1-0 by lowly Harborough Town in a United Counties League Premier Division clash at Hall Road.

And Field could not hide his disgust with his mid-table side.

He snapped: “It was absolutely woeful – our worst performance of the season by some distance.

“The pitch was diabolical and I’m not even sure the game had gone ahead.

“I’m not going to waste my time and effort for players to produce what they did on Saturday.

The only player to escape the wrath of Field was defensive prospect Nathan George.

The 17-year-old graduate of the club’s scholarship programme impressed during his first-team debut.

Eynesbury are back on home turf this Saturday when they host top-six hopefuls Deeping Rangers.

Their visit marks the start of a tough spell with Eynesbury due to face table-toppers AFC Rushden & Diamonds, fifth-placed Thurnby Nirvana and sixth-placed Cogenhoe in the coming weeks.
