TWO wins in a week have kept alive the dream of a late title charge at Bourton Rovers going into tomorrow’s (Friday’s) trip to Highworth Town reserves (7.45).

That clash comes just six days after Rovers won the reverse fixture thanks to goals from Steve Nurse and the returning Connor Teague.

The Rissington Road outfit then made off from Brimscombe & Thrupp reserves with a 4-1 victory with Craig Gilson, Nurse (2) and Teague on the score sheet.

Sat third in Hellenic League Division Two West, Bourton trail leaders Moreton Rangers by 12 points with four games in hand and can heap more pressure on those above them by completing a double at Highworth.

In the home clash, Teague returned to the starting XI after three weeks out and impressed earlier on, showing good footwork to create a half chance 15 minutes in before failing to find the target.

Rovers keeper Simon Flower was brought into action in the 28th minute and pulled off a fine stop to maintain parity.

That save was rewarded within two minutes when Nurse turned nicely in the box and drilled into the bottom right corner of the Highworth goal.

Rovers then dominated the rest of the half and doubled their lead in the 43rd minute from a corner when Teague volleyed inside the near post.

The second half opened up with Rovers continuing to dominate possession and creating a number of half chances.

Nurse had a chance to make it three in the 63rd minute with Jack Robson and Craig Gilson dominating the aerial battles in the search for another from set pieces.

As time ebbed away, Highworth created a couple of good chances but were unable to breakdown the Rovers backline and held out for the win.
