Godmanchester manager Karly Hurst said the game had followed a familiar frustrating pattern.

"We did enough in the match to take a point, but couldn't put away the chances we created. We've not had the rub of the green in recent matches."

Hurst also said he recognised that his squad needed new blood, and hoped to have at least two new additions signed up and playing by Saturday.

Unbeaten in 17 matches, Yarmouth came looking for a win but were held in check in the first 45 minutes by a solid defensive display by Rovers.

Chances were at a premium in the first period, but Paul Bass almost rattled the Bloaters when he burst through only to drag his shot into the keeper.

The first goal came just after the hour when a long clearance was fumbled by keeper Connor Jordan, and the rebound dropped kindly for the Yarmouth forward to lob home.

Lee Boon and Bass both came close to getting Rovers back level but the visiting keeper pulled off two outstanding saves. As the game drew to a close Yarmouth broke away to net a second minutes from the end.

nGodmanchester hosted St Ives last night in the Hinchingbrooke Cup, and travel to Fakenham Town on Saturday. Kick-off 3pm.
