A CONVINCING 4-1 victory away at Rocester saw Coventry Sphinx continue their impressive start to the Midland Premier League season.

Manager Stuart Dutton had been busy strengthening his squad last week with the addition of striker Jamie Towers and defender Liam Kay, and both were handed their debuts on Saturday afternoon.

Sphinx started the stronger of the two sides and it took just 21 minutes for the deadlock to be broken.

Some excellent work down the right from Jamie Towers provided Anton Astley with the opportunity to loop a header over the Rocester keeper from the at the far post.

It was not long before Sphinx extended their lead and on 29 minutes another right wing cross found Jamie Towers who headed past the flailing keeper.

Nine minutes after the break Rocester pulled a goal back through Joseph Brockley’s deflected free kick but with 20 minutes remaining the two-goal cushion was restored.

Ryan Harkin used his pace to put the ball on a plate for Jamie Towers to pass in his second goal of the game and Harking netted himself three minutes from time to wrap up a comfortable victory.

Sphinx boss Stuart Dutton said: “We’ve been working hard this week to get in some additional lads to bring some more quality to an already impressive squad. That paid off on Saturday.”
