Dubi Ogbonna added his 17th of the season just four minutes later, slotting home after good work wide on the right by Deakan Napier.

Ogbonna was again involved in Soham's third as he picked out Napier amid a crowd of defenders, with the diminutive winger making no mistake from close range.

The points were all but sealed bang on the 20-minute mark as Ogbonna broke free in the box to finish from a Scott Carter cross.

To their credit, Rothwell continued undeterred following a raucous opening spell and managed to pull a goal back 10 minutes shy of half-time courtesy of Bobby White.

The visitors added another goal 10 minutes into the second-half to get pulses racing among the home faithful but Soham held firm amid a late barrage to claim three valuable points.
