A Caine Elliott brace secured Rugby Town another dogged victory against a stubborn Godmanchester at Huntingdon Town's Jubilee Park ground.
It was a game of few clear cut chances played out on an inconsistent surface, but Elliott's goals near the beginning and the end of the match saw Valley continue this season's unbeaten away league record with just one fixture on the road remaining.
There were starts for Drew Kear, Josh Thomas and Ryan Seal as Town boss Carl Adams shuffled his opening eleven for a fixture switched to Rovers' neighbouring club after two previously aborted attempts at playing at their normal home venue.
Rugby nearly took a quickfire lead when Elliott picked out Kear in the box, but he could only put his effort into the side netting.
The travelling Valley faithful did not have to wait long for a goal though, when Elliott finished off Tom Fielding's deep cross to the back post with a neatly controlled low half-volley.
Another Fielding centre was diverted just over his own bar by the head of Godmanchester defender Steve Sylvester, as Town were having the bulk of the play on the grassy and bobbly pitch.
The visitors' main creative output Fielding exited the field on the half-hour mark with a tight hamstring though, before Rovers' first sight on goal came when Jordan Atkin headed wide an Alfie Ray-Turner cross.
Fielding's replacement Madundo Semahimbo's crisply struck volley from twenty five yards represented the last chance of the half, although home keeper George Whitehall dealt with this relatively comfortably.
Rugby had a strong appeal for a penalty turned down shortly after the restart when Michael Taylor appeared to be clipped after he had run onto Seal's through ball and then rounded Whitehall.
Shortly after, Elliott cut back a cross into Whitehall's hands after an incisive run, but all too Town often struggled to break down the resolute Godmanchester rearguard.
In fact it was the home side that looked the more likely to score, with Luke English putting in a strong challenge to deny Sammy Fisher on the byline and then Kear almost inadvertently guiding the ball into own his net, but fortunately Hill backpedalled quickly to push it away for a corner.
Hill then pulled off a fine diving save to Atkin's angled shot, with the busy Town keeper also doing well under pressure to punch away a couple of dangerous inswinging corners.
As the game became a more and more scrappy affair, Town lost their way a little, although Semahimbo did nearly take advantage of Taylor's lay-off to him, but was denied by sharp keeping from Whitehall.
Loyiso Recci's timely clearance in the box protected Valley's slender lead, before Taylor missed out on a decent opportunity when he also powered one into the side-netting after he had pounced on a short back-pass from the hosts.
The game was put to bed in the final minute of normal time, after Declan Rogers fouled Taylor in the penalty area and Ellliott grabbed his twelfth of the campaign so far with a confident penalty into the middle of the goal.
