AN own goal from keeper Vic Burrell cost Bourton Rovers victory.

Rovers needed a win to guarantee their Gloucestershire Northern Senior League Division Two survival but had to settle for a point when Burrell punched the ball into his own net with four minutes remaining.

Burrell had earlier been in form as he kept his side in the game following an awful start against the Forest of Dean visitors.

Harrow Hill deservedly took the lead on 30 minutes when slack defending led to a simple header for 1-0.

Rovers improved in the second-half and equalised when a George Goodwin free-kick from the half-way line found Matt Winter and he lobbed the keeper with a cool finish.

Rovers started to pile the pressure on their visitors and went close on a couple of occasions through Richard Gunn and Mark Larner.

They eventually took the lead with 15 minutes left when Johnny Hallan’s shot hit the post but the rebound fell to Winter who netted from eight yards.

Harrow Hill, however, turned up the heat in the last 10 minutes and got a deserved equaliser with four minutes left. A cross deflected off Chris Hughes and keeper Burrell diverted the ball into his own net.

Bourton lost 1-0 at Stroud FC on Monday and 3-0 at home to Barnwood on Tuesday.
