.. .. Ben Daniels .. Joe Hawkins .. Matt Gilham .. Harry Grant .. Lee Dyer Jamie Webber .. Jack Driscoll .. Harry Boyt .. Sam Scott .. Jordan Fisk .. Andy Newman …. Flattened grass.
Mike Pope .. Dave Thompkins .. Zak Barrett .. Jack Laundon .. dented the bench.
Grant was the first to grab notice with a great tackle in the box and slipping the ball to Fisk set up our first counter. Fisk used it well and released Webber down the right. A quick cross and Newman was inches wide in putting us ahead.
Boyt engineered a couple of breaks but the ball resisted attempts to pass the keeper into the net.
H&D didn't have the same problem and on 12 minutes found a gap in our defence to score past Daniels. 0-1.
Newman slammed in an equalizer 10 minutes later to level at 1-1. Driscoll and Scott worked an opening releasing Fisk but again the ball was like a Morrison's trolley and wouldn't go where it was intended.
On 42 minutes we lapsed concentration and a high ball from H&D right flank dropped into the box where a toe end steered it past Daniels. 1-2.
Half Time 1-2
We made the initial running in the second half with some good football on the deck and on 55 minutes Fisk took over Boyts penetrating run to fire in an angled shot the keeper did well to divert for a booted clearance.
H&D then had a good spell giving Dyer and Hawkins plenty to do. Grant and Gilham looked comfortable on the ball so it was an end to end session we endured with a lack of goals.
Daniels pulled off a couple of good saves but on 67 minutes a good move through the middle gave space for a shot ..1-3.
Laundon had come on for Newman and Driscoll made way for Dave Thompkins who had sneaked on before Barrett got warm.
We lost a bit of pace and H&D benefitted scoring a fourth on 78 minutes.
92 minutes and Boyt hammered a free kick into the roof of H&D's net.
