Godmanchester Rovers 1 Hadleigh United 2
TWO late goals left Godmanchester joint-manager Karly Hurst cursing his luck as high-flying Hadleigh nicked the points to leave Rovers bottom of the league.
Hurst said: "With 20 minutes to go we thought we had three points and with five minutes to go we thought we had one, so to end up with nothing is disappointing.

"We are playing much better than earlier in the season and it won't be too long until we are off the bottom."
Rovers had the better of a goalless first half with Stephen Hurst and Steve Thompson going close with the wind at their backs.

Despite kicking into the gale after the break, the home side took the lead midway through the half. Chris Salter converted at the far post after Stephen and David Hurst had combined well on the wing.
Godmanchester then sat back and when goalkeeper Stuart Chapman failed to clear a swirling long ball, Hadleigh equalised before a late corner swung directly into the top corner, robbing Rovers of what would have been a deserved point.
