Rovers made it lucky 13, with the first win after 12 straight defeats when a Hermann Tehe double gave them the points in a feisty clash with Hanworth Villa.

In a cagey first half, it was Rovers, on the half hour who had the clearest chance. Good work on the left by Herman Tehe saw the ball eventually reach Dion Macfoy-Johnston but his shot was superbly saved by Gary Ross.

Villa struck on the stroke of half time. A king Sam Merson throw was only half cleared and Gagendeep Samra slammed the ball home to give Villa a half time lead.

The second half grew in intensity with tackles flying but little to trouble either keeper.

Rovers levelled with their first goal in 527 minutes when Tehe escaped down the left and curled an effort beyond Gary Ross (pic above).

Fifteen minutes later and it was 2-1, Josh Uzon saw a free kick well saved, Cox’s follow up was brilliantly blocked by Villa’s Ansah-Palmer but Rovers recycled the ball and Tehe curled home his second.

An altercation on the sidelines led to 11 minutes of injury time but Rovers held out for the win.
