Highworth back to winning ways

By

Fleet Town 3-4 Highworth Town

After four successive defeats, the Worthians got back to winning ways, just, at Fleet Town today.

Three first half goals appeared to have secured the points but when the home side got one back in the 3rd minute of added time at the end of the first half the game changed.

Darren Jefferies put Highworth 1 up on 9 minutes when Ash Edenborough and TJ Bohane combined down the right with the latter setting up Darren Jefferies to open the scoring. Sam Morris went close for the visitors on 23 minutes before a free kick from Chris Taylor was headed past his own keeper by Lucas ODell-Angba whilst under pressure from Edenborough.

Morris made it 3-0 on 40 minutes from close range having been set up by Jefferies and all looked good for the visitors. Fleet pulled one back with a great strike just on half-time by Kofi Halliday.

HT 3-1 Highworth Town.

It was 4-1 immediately after the break as Ash Edenborough took advantage of a couple of fortuitous ricochets to fire home into an empty net.

Two minutes later it was 4-2 as a great cross from the right was converted at the back post by Abdulbasit Rajab.

Toumani Sidibe of Highworth was then sent off in the 60th minute. Having not been awarded a free kick for a robust tackle on him, followed by Fleet not returning the ball to Highworth after it had been kicked out, Sidibi's frustration boiled over and he allegedly made comments to the referee which resulted in his second red card of the season.

With Fleet pressing forward against the 10 men it was a barrage of crosses into the box from out wide which caused Highworth problems. Two goal line clearances by Rory Sproule and a couple of decent collections by keeper Connor Johns managed to keep the 2 goal lead intact.

On a rare break forward, Darren Jefferies fed TJ Bohane in on goal but the home keeper made a great block.

Fleet did pull another back in the 84th minute through Enow-Tanyi Onegeh-Obi-Ojong, again following a cross from wide left but the visitors just about did enough to leave with 3 vital points.

Sidibi's inevitable suspension and a couple of non availabilities for next Saturday's game v Slimbridge will put pressure upon Jeff Roberts's small squad and it remains to be seen if any new signings can be made to week to bolster the squad.
