The Eynesbury Rovers juggernaut rolled on last night.
Mark Ducket’s side reeled off an 11th win in their last dozen United Counties League Premier Division games when beating 10-man Cogenhoe at Hall Road.
Tom Coles fired Eynesbury ahead after 18 minutes before Craig Smith doubled their advantage with a penalty 10 minutes later.
Visiting player Harry Osborne was dismissed for handling a Rhys Thorpe lob on the goal-line, and top-scorer Smith made no mistake from the spot.
Rovers struck again on the hour through Allan Owen, their weekend match-winner against table-toppers Peterborough Sports.
