Eynesbury Rovers 1 Sleaford Town 2

A GAME played in extremely windy conditions ended Eynesbury's run of three consecutive league wins.

Rovers, who hadn't played since their 6-1 triumph at Huntingdon on Boxing Day, came close to snatching the lead in the 17th minutes but Neil Morris's chip came back off the crossbar.

Sleaford took the lead three minutes later when Kirk Kidd fouled Pete Sutton in the box and Jason Sedlan sent Ben Houseago the wrong way from the spot.

After the break Kidd went close to equalising for Eynesbury but his shot was saved and Sleaford extended their lead after 53 minutes when Kris Jones converted from a corner.
