Rugby Town made it four wins on the spin with victory at struggling Rothwell Corinthians.

Headers from Jamal Clarke and David Kolodynski respectively eased the visitors to victory, whilst Rugby also recorded a third successive clean sheet in maintaining their third place berth in the league table.

Alex Lock in for the ill Edwin Ahenkorah represented the only change to Valley's starting eleven from the previous weekend's home success over Biggleswade, with James Hancocks returning to the squad on the bench after a seven week absence through injury.

The opening half of an hour of the game was decidedly uneventful, although Kolodynski did have one header to a Caine Elliott cross blocked away - with Justin Marsden's shot from the rebound then deflected away for a corner.

Luca Miller fired one way over for the hosts in a rare moment of threat to the Rugby defence, before Town nearly opened the scoring after Kolodynski's hassling had forced Jude O'Connor into dropping the ball near the edge of his area, but Barry Fitzharris was just unable to lift it over the head of the now stranded keeper.

Clarke did break the deadlock on 35 minutes though, when he timed his run perfectly to meet a neatly flighted corner from Marsden to head home from a few yards out.

Valley pushed on for a second goal before the break, with Lock's shot which was parried away by O'Connor representing the closest they came to it.

The new half started quietly also, with the only moment of danger in the Corinthians box coming when a Luke English long throw was missed by everyone and ultimately had to be beaten away by O'Connor.

However the home side's increasingly direct tactics were starting to bear some fruit at the other end, and Miller flashed one across the face of Ash Bodycote's goal after he found some space down the left hand channel.

The two sides then traded decent chances, with Fitzharris volleying Clarke's headed knock-down over the target and then Bodycote pulling off a decent save to push over Zac Allen's angled strike.

Town sub Adam Shaw almost set-up his team's second with a speedy run down the right, but his cross was competently cleared by Aaron Healey, but the important two goal cushion was installed shortly after when Madundo Semahimbo did well on the other wing before delivering a perfect cross for Kolodynski to head home from close range on 75 minutes.

Rugby looked the more likely to score again in the remaining period of play, with Shaw shooting over after Josh Thomas's pass had released him, and Hancocks also missing the target with his effort late on.

Valley Line-up: Bodycote; English, Eden, Summerfield, Clarke; Fitzharris (Thomas), Lock (Shaw), Elliott; Marsden (Hancocks), Semahimbo, Kolodynski. Subs not used: Recci, Francis. Booked: None.

Rothwell line-up: O'Connor, Yerolohu, Busch, Page, Healey, Bird, Allen, Merrick, Phillip, Miller, Wells. Subs: Brooks, Robinson, Green, King.
