Worthians back to winning ways

Bristol Manor Farm 1-2 Highworth Town

Despite falling behind to a penalty midway through the first half, a battling display saw Highworth take all 3 points at The Creek on Saturday.

Highworth had claims for a second minute penalty rejected by the officials when Ash Edenborough appeared to be bundled over by home keeper Ben John. Almost immediately the home side felt equally disappointed when a Highworth tackle in their penalty box was not seen as foul play either.

Bristol Manor Farm then had a decent spell with several corners and free kicks from just outside the box but it was a penalty that gave them the lead on 23 minutes. Highworth keeper Connor Johns did well to push clear a free kick low to his right but in the immediate aftermath, Highworth debutant Sam Morris, was deemed to have committed a foul and Ashley Kington put the home side ahead from the spot.

Highworth then got a foothold in the game and two minutes before half time the ball was played to Sean Wood out on the wide right and his pass inside picked out Callum Ferguson who fired home across the keeper from 16 yards.

HT 1-1

Highworth took the lead on 53 minutes when Darren Jefferies drove into the penalty box from the right and held off a couple of challenges before slotting the ball into the corner of the net.

Headers from Leon Morrison and Callum Parsons went close to adding to the score and ensuring a comfortable finish to the game for Highworth but without a third goal arriving, the last 15 minutes saw the home side push forward but without really causing Connor Johns too many concerns.

Overall this first league win since September was well deserved with a hard working display from the whole team although Manager Jeff Roberts will hope the injury that forced Callum Parsons off is not too serious.

Next Saturday we welcome Melksham Town to the Save On Tyres Stadium, 3.00 KO.
