Aylesbury 2 Rugby Town 0
In a disappointing performance, injury-hit Rugby Town lost out to fellow promotion hopefuls Aylesbury on Saturday.
A goal midway through each half was Valley’s downfall, as they struggled to mount a comeback.
The result sees Aylesbury in third spot in the Evo-Stik Southern League Central Division, with Rugby in sixth.
On Boxing Day, Rugby have another game against potential play-off rivals Bedworth United at Butlin Road and on New Year’s Day they travel to leaders Kettering.
