Histon battle back from one-goal deficit to win Boxing Day clash against Godmanchester Rovers





Histon showed good powers of recovery to beat Godmanchester Rovers 2-1 in Boxing Day’s derby at Bridge Road.

Ben Tait edged visiting Godmanchester ahead in the Uhlsport United Counties League Premier Division encounter.

However, skipper Max York drew the hosting Stutes level before Danny Gould scored what turned out to be the winning goal from the penalty spot just before the break.

Chris Nunn, who has now won all four of his home matches in charge of the club, said on the club’s social media channels: “We played our way into the game and we looked dangerous going forward.

“The boys worked really hard. We’ve got a small squad at the moment with a lot of players missing. We had to really dig in and I thought we deserved the win.

“Sometimes it shows a bit of character when you’ve got to dig in, when your backs are to the wall and you’ve got to see the game through by the odd goal.”

The victory over Godmanchester came on the back of Saturday’s 3-1 triumph at Newport Pagnell Town.

Hosting Pagnell had won all nine of their home matches going into the encounter but Ed Rolph, an own goal and another Gould penalty sealed the victory for Nunn’s side.

Histon, who are up to 16th, will sign off for 2023 at St Neots Town on Saturday (December 30).
