Unsuccessful trip to North Devon

By

AFC Bideford 1 Highworth Town 0

A decimated squad made the long journey to Bideford and despite some strong individual performances it proved to be a disappointing afternoon as the home side won the game in the 91st minute when a Down header finally broke down the visitors defence.
The first half was an even affair with few chances for either team. Highworth's best efforts came from a Darren Jefferies shot across the goal from the left but just passed outside of the far post. Chris Taylor just failed to reach a cross from Edjidja mbunga cross with Jefferies missing the target following up.
HT 0-0
The home side completely dominated the second half. Brilliant goalkeeping from Connor Johns. a couple of goal line clearances, heroic defending and the woodwork kept the scores level until added time when, from the last of a series of corners and free kicks, Down got his head to a free kick from the right to beat Johns with a thunderous finish from 10 yards.
3 defeats on the bounce for the Worthians now but chances to get back to winning ways this week with 2 home games.
Weds 7.45 ko v Winchester City
