Park Street Village 1 Codicote 0

DAVE Ross scored late on to give Park Street Village the points at home to Codicote on Saturday.

The match was a turgid affair on the tough Toulmin Drive surface and PSV boss Ryan Thompson was not entertained with the spectacle. He said: "Both sides cancelled each other out. It was a slum fest. Anyone watching it would have thought my goodness this is awful. It really was that bad."

Park Street goalkeeper Tony Kerby was largely untroubled and it took a moment of magic from substitute Dave Ross to settle the contest. Thompson said: "We took off Andy Findlay and put on Dave Ross. We went three up top with Dave Ross as a third striker and then we put on Matty Day who set up the goal with his first touch. He played the ball to Dave Ross who finished clinically from a tight angle into the bottom left-hand corner. He has that little bit of composure in front of goal that we lack sometimes."

Defender Ricky Petts gave a towering display and Andy Ruck came through his return off the bench, after a long spell out with a broken ankle. Thompson said: "We work extremely hard and it is very rare that teams get behind us and have a one-on-one with the goalkeeper."

Rovers are without skipper Chris Day, Ant Burns and Matt Day on Saturday when they go away to face Evergreen in the last four of the Aubrey Cup on Saturday.
