Match report by Ron Loftus
On a difficult day for all concerned we competed well for the first hour or so, and managed to hold the league-leaders to 0-0 at half-time. This was mainly due to some brave goalkeeping from Joe Perry and some wasteful finishing from our hosts who spurned a couple of one-on-one chances when perhaps they should have done better.
A strong crossfield wind made things difficult for both sides but as we tired in the second period the writing was soon on the wall. With Luke Spokes making only a cameo appearance from the bench after the hour mark, his straight red card for a high-footed challenge saw his return to the sidelines after only a couple of minutes.
This spurred the home team on and although there was an element of good fortune about their opening goal, by Charlie Gunson after 66 mins, as a deep cross from the right caught in the wind and struck the far post before going in, there was only one team in it from there on in.
Further goals came from Sam Poole on 71 mins, and Fatah Makhloufi on 81 mins, there could be no complaints about the final 0-3 score-line but thankfully all the other sides at the bottom with us also suffered defeat so the situation remains as-you-were for now at least !!
