Far from their best, but three more points
Calor League – Central Division
Rugby Town 2
AFC Hayes 0
A goal in each half secured Town another Butlin Road victory, but they were far from their best against a resourceful Hayes side – who will count themselves unlucky to return home empty-handed.
Rugby took the lead against the run of play, when Lake-Gaskin surged confidently forward before slipping the ball to Josh O’Grady – who fired home from the edge of the area.
Town’s second goal came with just five minutes of normal time remaining, after Chas Goode had tripped O’Grady in the box – providing Lake-Gaskin with the opportunity of a second spot-kick of the week, which he once more confidently powered into the top corner.
