In a season that has been, to date, disappointing for the Greenway Lane side, certainly based on their efforts of recent campaigns, the Robins finally found some consistency and bagged back- to-back away victories for the first time this season.

On Saturday the Robins travelled to Newton Abbot Spurs where they banked the South West Peninsula League points thanks to a deflected goal from Adam Clarke.

However, the single goal margin at the final whistle does not give a true reflection of what was a dominant display from the Robins who carved out a number of chances to win the contest by a greater margin.

Twenty-four hours after the win at Newton Abbot, only their second on the road all season, they travelled across East Devon for an Axminster Hospital Cup meeting with Division One side Seaton Town.

The Sunday game saw the Robins claim a comfortable 3-0 win in a match that will be remembered for the late cameo from Joe Perry.

Perry sat on the bench for 85 minutes before bring plunged into the action. Within a minute he had scored but he earnt the wrath of the referee for an over exuberant celebration and, within a couple of minutes, was considered guilty of an over zealous challenge which subsequently saw the substitute handed a second yellow, `which in turn meant a rapid departure from the action.

Perry's afternoon? Four minutes, one goal, two yellow cards, and an early shower!
