ROTHERFIELD UNITED leapfrogged BRACKNELL ROVERS in the John Dell Senior Division after running out 3-2 winners at Bishopswood.

Bracknell started brightly and took a two goal lead within 10 mins.

Rotherfield pulled a goal back when Adam Choules advanced into the area from left back and a mix-up between the Bracknell defence and keeper saw the ball fall to Ben Keable to score from six yards out.

Rotherfield continued to pile on the pressure and equalised when a Bracknell defender handled in the area and Ricky Sidhu converted the penalty.

Rotherfield scored the winning goal when Keable played through Candish and he dinked the ball over the on-rushing keeper.

In the second half Wargrave took full control of the game and created numerous scoring chances. Bettes added his second, Jim Woolford scored his first of the season and Bray completed his hat-trick with two further goals.
