Godmanchester Rovers need to win two of their remaining three games to secure a second successive runners-up finish in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division.
Matt Clements’ men continued an unbeaten league run which stretches back to December 19 with a smooth 3-0 triumph against bottom side Whitton United at the David Wilson Homes Ground today.
Luke Brown provided a breakthrough from the penalty spot after a quarter-of-an-hour which was quickly followed by an own goal before Jonny Hall hit a late clincher.
Rovers’ fine streak now stands at 17 Premier Division matches – 16 of which have ended in victory.
The latest of those successes moved them to within two points of second-placed Stanway Rovers with two matches in hand. Table-toppers Norwich United have already been crowned champions.
