CARLUKE Rovers ended their league campaign with a fine 3-1 home win over fellow high fliers Benburb last Saturday.

Rovers are second in the Central Division 1 table having completed their 24-game league season.

But it is highly unlikely that they will even finish in one of the top three promotion slots as rival clubs have games in hand on the John Cumming Stadium outfit.

Carluke scored their third and final goal in the 89th minute when a great lay-off from Watt set Hamilton free on goal, shooting in a cool, low finish to the Bens keeper’s left.

Sadly, this goal sparked ugly scenes as the Bens saw the match slip away from them, 3-1

Richie Lovering lashed out at Craig Stewart with a vicious punch that saw him ordered off and Stewart end up in hospital.

But none of this took the shine off a Rovers performance which put them into second place. You can view all the action in our slideshow.
