Terrors

2-2

Bracknell Town

O.G, Ghandour

(0-2)



It was honours even in what was a superb match between two good footballing sides and as the saying goes it was the proverbial game of two halves. The visitors had the better of the opening 45 minutes although the Terrors did have their moments. In the 11th minute a well worked free-kick routine by Bracknell saw Joseph Grant have a close-range effort well saved by Luke Colquhoun and soon after the same player had a shot saved when he was through on goal. On the half-hour Danny Bassett forced a good stop from Mark Scott as he cut in from the right.

Five minutes later Daryl Coleman was just off target with a powerful header from a Peter Wedgeworth corner. Just sixty seconds later Town took the lead when a precision cross from the left was fired home in a flash by Joseph Grant. Three minutes before the break the Robins were awarded a penalty after their lively winger Sebastian Bowerman was brought down just inside the area by Eddie Dines, Bowerman dusted himself down and sent the keeper the wrong way with a well taken spot-kick

After the interval Tooting stepped up a gear and needed an early breakthrough to get back into the contest and this they did with a little bit of good fortune when a shot from Eddie Dines deflected off Town defender Joe Gater into the net. The Terrors really had the bit between their teeth and drew level after 70 minutes when Hady Ghandour brought a ball down and fired in a low drive with much aplomb. Soon after Hady was at it again forcing a save from the keeper after good work by Isaiah Jones.

Tooting Man of the Match Hady Ghandour could not have come much closer to giving United the lead when his fierce drive crashed against the post with the keeper beaten in the 78th minute. Tooting piled on the pressure as they went all out for the winner but it would not come. Summing up, the encounter was a credit to the league with both teams likely to be in the shake-up at the end of the season more of the same please. It was pleasing to see our former player and manager Billy Smith at the game.

4-2

Uxbridge Town

Bassett, Ilic(2), D Coleman

(1-1)



Another cracking game in very wet and windy conditions which saw the Terrors have their shooting boots on with some classic long-range efforts. It didn’t start well as Uxbridge opened the scoring after just seven minutes when Mitchell Wiseman converted a free-kick, the assistant had his flag up but after a conversation with the referee the goal stood. Two minutes later Eddie Dines had a low shot saved by the visitor keepers legs. In the 19th minute Uxbridge had a good chance to go further

ahead when from a corner Luke Maguire had a free header but put it wide. Tooting drew level in the 39th minute when Danny Bassett scored with a low drive which skidded in on off the wet surface. Two minutes later Stefan Ilic set-up Danny Bassett

whose shot went just the wrong side of the post.

With the wind in their favour United piled on the pressure after the interval and did not have to wait long to take the lead. In the 51st minute following a good build-up Stefan Ilic cut in from the right and found the back of the net with a fine cross shot.

Isaiah Jones then had a good chance but fired over. On the hour Tooting extended their lead when a corner was cleared to Stefan Ilic who rifled in an unstoppable drive from about 30 yards out which went through a crowd of players and nestled in the

bottom corner of the net. Back came the Middlesex side and they pulled a goal back from a long range free-kick from defender David Thomas whose well struck effort went in off the post.


In stoppage time Dominic Morgan-Griffiths and Abraham Odoh both had goal-bound efforts blocked on the line but it didn’t matter as the clearance found its way to substitute Daryl Coleman who had only been introduced a couple of minutes earlier and he rifled in with aplomb from some distance to complete the scoring. Excellent at the back for the Terrors was Antonio Simeone who did not put ahead or foot wrong. Well done again to the team and the management for another fine performance and for the superb entertainment they are providing.
