Godmanchester Rovers extended their stunning unbeaten streak to 16 matches on the night their faint Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division title hopes were ended.
Matt Clements’ men, who last lost a league fixture on December 19, edged to a 1-0 victory against Long Melford at the David Wilson Homes Ground.
Prolific defender Charlie Bowen provided the only goal in a match delayed by approximately 30 minutes due to the late arrival of several opposition players, who were caught up in traffic chaos on route.
Rovers remain third in the table but can’t now reel in the 13-point gap to table-toppers Norwich United with only four matches to go. United clinched their second successive championship crown with victory at Walsham-le-Willows last night.
Huntingdon collected a surprise first point in 10 games – and just their eighth of the entire season – last night.
