BRIGHTON 1-2 ASHWOOD
Meadows, off the back of two victories set us up with what is fast becoming ‘the usual’ with a back five and a holding midfielder, Broom was given a more loose role this time round and it paid dividends.
A Lewis Dunk own goal got us in front in 20 minutes but that was soon cancelled out on 37 minutes when José Izquierdo met a loose ball on the edge of the area and rocketed a shot straight at Riviere who was unable to keep hold of the ball; it fell to Locadia who tucked the ball into the net.
Rod had a good strong word with the lads judging by their faces on the way out onto the pitch for the second half as they arrived a full 2 minutes earlier than the hosts. He clearly wasn’t happy with conceding his first goal as Ashwood City manager.
The lads responded in kind and after a number of long balls forward, one of them was held up by Ivan Lloyd, he cushioned the ball down to the arriving Kieran Broom who drilled it home and Ashwood were back in front.
Meadows, such as his want, shut the game down and Brighton were out of ideas come the full time whistle.
3 wins in a row, onwards to the FA cup and Gillingham for the Kent Derby!
