Rugby Town continued their recent progression in the MFL Premier Division with a 2-1 win in testing conditions at Long Eaton on Saturday.

David Kolodynski put Rugby ahead early in the second half, but their 13th-placed hosts equalised in the 63rd minute. Valley were soon on top again though, with a strike by Ruben Wiggins-Thomas just a couple of minutes later and that’s how it stayed.
