Eynesbury Rovers 3 Peterborough Northern Star 0
Saturday, 23 February 2008
Rovers produced the upset of the day to hit Star's promotion prospects.
There was early controversy as Star's Chris Plummer received his marching orders for a foul on Brett Bellamy which was committed by team mate Phil Anderson.
Eynesbury's Peterborough based striker Jamie Graham broke the deadlock against his home town club a minute before the hour, heading in a Stuart Humphreys free kick and five minutes later Bellamy marked his return from suspension with a second Rovers goal, a superb effort from 25 yards.
The woodwork denied Adam Scotcher a Star reply and Humphreys sealed the win eight minutes from time after combining with Bellamy.
