Started brightly with midfield keeping good possesion and finding the wide attackers, for a couple of crosses into the box that we could not get on the end of.

A half chance on 3mins, Josh Jones with a strike that went just wide. A few minutes later a good move in midfield released the ball into the right channel where Will Owen beat the defender to square the ball across the 6yd box and with the goal gaping, Rowlands missed the target, to halt Andy’s premature celebration.

We still looked a threat going forward and our opening goal came on 10 mins when the ball was played forward and with Daf Evans continuing his run to press the defender, forced the error and Daf won the ball to round the goalkeeper to slot home for 1-0.

Flint straight from the kick off looked lively. A few diagonal passes behing the fullbacks got us turned, but on 13mins we lost possession high up on the left side, and on the counter attack Flint played the ball into their right channel for their pacy striker to out-run our defender and square the ball for his teammate to tap in the equaliser.

On 35 mins we had to replace Tom Mann after a nasty clash of heads – Rodgers the sub.

We created another couple good chances that we should have scored to take the lead into half time.

2nd half we started well again, Will Owen causing their defense problems and on 47mins a great through ball from midfield found Will who was 1 v 1 with the goalkeeper. Will kept his cool and slotted it in the bottom corner to make it 2-1.

Will had another couple chances after the hour and Flint coused us problems at set-pieces but the lads held on for the win and an important 3 points.

MOM – Will Owen.
