Huntingdon hope to end their torrid season on a high with victory in their final match.

Relegated Town host Rothwell Corinthians in their closing United Counties League Premier Division fixture tomorrow (Saturday, 3pm).

They will go into it in confident mood following a fine 1-1 draw against fourth-placed Eynesbury Rovers in their penultimate outing nine days ago.

It was the second point gained during current boss Bob Warby’s reign and took their tally for the entire season to eight.

Warby said: “We know what Eynesbury are about and we set out to disrupt them. A draw was probably the fair result although we could have nicked the win at the end.

“The performance was there from the players and I can’t ask for any more than that. They are buying into what we want to do and I’ve been enjoying the job.

“Their attitude has been very good, and I would love for them to be able to get a win to finish the season.

Jordan Brockett hit Town’s equaliser against Eynesbury on the stroke of half-time before they missed a golden chance to snatch just a third league win of the season in stoppage time when Guy Mailancol fired wide in a frantic goalmouth scramble.
