A stunning Luke Abraham strike gave Aylesbury FC their first win since the end of March when they beat Barton Rovers 2-1 on Thursday night.

Craig Faulconbridge’s men last tasted victory against Beaconsfield SYCOB on March 30 before embarking on a run of six games without a win – including five straight defeats.

But the Moles picked up a welcome point in a 1-1 draw with North Greenford United on Tuesday and followed that up by coming from behind to beat Rovers 2-1 48 hours later.

Boss Craig Faulconbridge had called for more commitment and desire and was rewarded by his side even if they did do things the hard way, conceding the first goal when Barton broke the offside trap at the Affinity Investments Stadium.

Despite a number of chances FC went in 1-0 down at the break but Davis Haule levelled things up in the second half.

The game’s champagne moment was Abraham’s brilliant strike from Ben Stevens’ through ball, though. It was a goal worthy of winning any match and sealed a welcome three points for the club after some harsh defeats recently.

FC travel to play Chertsey Town on Saturday in their last away match of the season before entertaining the same opposition in Aylesbury on Tuesday night (7.45pm).
