Holbeach United 2 Godmanchester Rovers 0
AN IMPROVED second-half performance could not stop gutsy Rovers slumping out of the FA Vase.
The visitors' approach play failed to create the clear-cut chances needed to make their hosts pay.

Godmanchester could hardly have had a worse start when, after just four minutes, goalkeeper Gavin Armitage was beaten at his near post by a free-kick from Kevin Childs.
The visitors refused to let this setback upset their determination. For the remainder of the first half they looked the better side but despite creating chances they were still behind at the interval.

In the second half, Lee Boon looked dangerous for the visitors, bringing three saves from home keeper Kevin Cross, and Jamie Hurst headed wide when well-placed.
With four minutes left, John Brierley conceded what looked a rather harsh penalty, and from this Matt Oswin clinched victory for the Lincolnshire side.
