Godmanchester Rovers reeled off a fifth successive victory when triumphing 1-0 at Ipswich Wanderers in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division.

Frontman Ben Yeomans grabbed the only goal - just as he did in an FA Vase victory against Raunds the previous weekend.

Recent signing Matty Allan was denied a first Rovers goal by the woodwork, but Yeomans’ effort proved enough to continue a fine run.

Eynesbury were left to rue a catalogue of missed chances when being held to a United Counties League Premier Division draw yesterday.

Rovers had to settle for a point in a 1-1 deadlock at Rothwell Corinthians after seeing Steven Gentle’s opener cancelled out.
