Ebey Marango fired a last-gasp winner as Eynesbury Rovers claimed an impressive scalp last night.

Marango struck in the final minute to secure a 1-0 victory over unbeaten Premier Division leaders AFC Kempston Rovers in the second round of the United Counties League KO Cup.

Rovers’ reward is a semi-final trip to Cogenhoe.

It wasn’t such a good night for St Neots Town a few miles away.

The Saints were beaten 2-1 by Hitchin in the Southern League Premier Division despite hitting the front courtesy of a second-minute Drew Roberts penalty.
