After their two cup disappointments, Rugby Town returned to winning ways with a very late 1-0 result over Eynesbury Rovers on Saturday.

Danico Johnson provided the cross for the winner

Goalkeeper Matt Hill had saved a penalty to keep Valley in the game and it looked like being a draw, when sub Lewis Rankin turned in Danico Johnson’s low cross to snatch the points.

Rugby are now sixth in the UCL Premier division, with 12 points from their six games. Eynesbury are fourth with 13 from seven games.
