Eynesbury claimed a first win in four United Counties League Premier Division game on Tuesday night.

Rovers came from behind to triumph 3-2 at Northampton side Sileby Rangers.

They were behind at the break but levelled through a 15th goal of the season from leading scorer Dom Lawless early in the second half.

Eynesbury hit the front with 20 minutes to go when a Jordan Brown cross was diverted into his own net by a Sileby defender.

The points were sealed when substitute Craig Smith headed in a Declan Rogers free kick before Sileby claimed a stoppage time consolation when Eynesbury defender Steven Gentle sliced into his own net.
