Eynesbury produced a second-half comeback to equal a club record that has stood for more than a quarter of a century.
Tom Coles hit a late winner as Rovers beat Sleaford Town 2-1 at Hall Road to register a ninth successive United Counties League victory today – a feat they last managed at Step 5 level in 1990/91.
They had to do it the hard way though, after falling behind midway through the first half when a George Asplin effort caught out goalkeeper Jamie Greygoose.
Rovers levelled in the 66th minute as leading scorer Craig Smith earned and converted a penalty to register his 15th goal of the season.
And the turnaround was completed with three minutes to go when Coles struck with three minutes to go.
