Melksham Town…2 Mangotsfield United…1


Report by Ron Loftus

A much-changed side which saw debuts for new signings Kieran Hodges, Michael Rimmer and Miles John was always going to face a tough task against a side who had only lost once in the league this season. Truth be told we were outplayed for most of the first 45 mins. and new 'keeper Hodges showed plenty of promise when called to make a number of saves to keep the scoreline respectable.

Having said that we created a couple of decent chances but failed to capitalise . A disastrous start to the second period when a rash challenge from Clayton Fortune saw a straight red card and a penalty which young Hodges came close to stopping meant a mountain to climb at 0-2. Enforced changes saw Colin Magoya and Michael Bryant come off the bench and we came much more into the game.

When an excellent free-kick from Luke Spokes was deflected home by Michael Bryant after 85 mins. it felt as if we could still get something from the game.

In stoppage time a superb , low free-kick from Luke Spokes went around the defensive wall and seemed destined for the bottom corner but home custodian Darren Behcet made a brilliant full-length save to preserve our hosts lead. Ollie Price will continue to search for the best line-up I am sure and once again a basically young side showed plenty of effort without carrying enough of a threat going forward. We move on - keep the faith !! COYF !
