Harpenden Rovers 2 Croxley Guild 1

HARPENDEN Rovers got back to winning ways when they faced Croxley Guild at home on Tuesday, August 26.

With a strong squad Rovers started brightly without creating chances. In the 35th minute against the run of play a great strike from a Croxley midfielder put the visitors in the lead at half time.

After some stern words and a change of formation Rovers came out at the second half and completely dominated the match, with skipper Chugg and Watson controlling midfield.

With 15 minutes to go a great cross from Chugg caused panic in the Croxley goal mouth and was turned into the net for an own goal.

With the game going into injury time it looked like Rovers would have to settle for one point especially after two penalty appeals were turned down.

To their credit Rovers fought on and from a Chugg corner Adam Price forced home from a couple of yards to take all three points.

Rovers: Thomas, Peacock, Pegram (Izzard), Fox, Williams, Chugg, Hitchcock, Devoti, Watson, Price, Smith (Lythgoe). Unused subs: Rawlinson, Metcalfe.
