A GOAL in each half proved enough to see Rugby cement their place in the play-off zone with victory against struggling Fleet Town on Saturday.

With the rain hammering down, Fleet’s best moment came early on but Dave Bevan kept out Jack White’s effort and from then on Rugby went on to dominate.

Fazel Koriya and the impressive Craig Kelly both went close to open the scoring before Valley did strike in the 29th minute.

There was initial confusion as to who got the goal with both Mason Rowley and David Kolodynski wheeling away in celebration after Kelly’s excellent corner.

After the goal was originally accredited to Rowley, it was in fact Kolodynski who turned in the defender’s flicked header from close range.

Ryan Price denied Kolodynski a second shortly afterwards when he was clean through on the keeper before Seb Lake-Gaskin blazed over as the hosts pushed for a second before the break.

Fleet made more of a game of it in the second half, with Bevan down well to save Ben White’s shot and Pat Cox’s close range strike blocked on the line by Alex Gudger.

Kolodynski struck the upright with a speculative effort from distance for Rugby before late in the game they grabbed a second when substitute Richard Blythe finished off a quick counter-attack which had seen Kolodynski break free down the left wing.
