AFTER four league wins on the spin, Route One Rovers have lost a second consecutive game 6-1.

Beaten by that scoreline as they were dumped out of the FA Vase at the first hurdle by Kendal Town over the weekend, they went down to a repeat defeat yesterday at Euxton Villa in the North West Counties Football League First Division North.

On a bruising afternoon, they were 3-0 down at the break and soon conceded a fourth.

Musa Jallow hit back for the Bradford side as they reduced the deficit, heading home a Callan Parker-Wells cross, only for Villa to hit a fifth just before the hour mark.

Route One then had stopper Sulaiman Sajjad sent off for bringing down his man, and Euxton quickly added a sixth.

Another red card for a professional foul late on compounded the misery for nine-man Rovers.

Steeton had a better Bank Holiday Monday, winning 2-1 at home to South Liverpool.

The hosts dominated the game, with Jake Townsend putting them 1-0 up before the break from Mo Farhan Subhani’s through ball.

With a South Liverpool man in the sin-bin for dissent, the Chevrons doubled their advantage through a fierce Josh McKiernon strike.

A handball in the box from Jeremie Milambo allowed the visitors to halve the deficit from the spot, with Steeton keeper James Catlow then receiving a second yellow card for tripping the scorer over as he retrieved the successful penalty.

Outfielder Josh Walne finished the game in goal, and he was indebted to a last-gasp clearance off the line from teammate Josh Kaine to ensure a Steeton victory.

In a hard-fought derby at Liversedge in the Northern Premier League East Division, visitors Brighouse Town came out on top, Mo Qasim scoring a penalty just before half-time to seal a 1-0 victory.

Finally, Farsley Celtic were beaten 2-0 at Chester in National League North.

They conceded twice early on, and then had Conor Branson sent off in the second half for denying a goalscoring opportunity.
