Victory puts play-off campaign back on track

Rugby Town beat St Ives Town 3-0 last night, breaking their hoodoo of Tuesday evening defeats in the league, which had seen them lose the last five.

Richard Gregory put Valley ahead in the 13th minute with a penalty, which also their hosts down to ten men, and Sam Youngs made sure of the points with goals in the 21st and 52nd minutes.

It leaves Rugby still fourth in the Evostik Southern League Central Division One, with eight games to play. Town have re-established a three-point gap between them and fifth placed Royston – with Barton and Hanwell now a further four points behind, both of whom have two games in hand on Town.

With Aylesbury and Bedworth above them still within touching distance, it really is now any four from six for the end of season play-offs.
