Eynesbury Rovers climbed into fifth place in the United Counties League Premier Division courtesy of a first-half double-strike.

Mark Ducket’s men smoothly saw off Harrowby at Hall Road with both goals in a 2-0 triumph arriving in the space of nine minutes.

Matty Bannister broke the deadlock at the mid-point of the opening period before Lee Bassett doubled the Hunts Senior Cup finalists’ cushion just after the half-hour.

Huntingdon produced a pleasing effort in a 3-1 defeat at top-six side Holbeach.

Bob Warby’s men equalised just after the half-hour courtesy of Jordan Brockett’s second goal in as many matches, but they were undone by second-half efforts.

They remain 15 points from safety with only eight games remaining.
