Min­has magic set­tles it

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -


Tre Mit­ford had half a chance for the Rams on 19 min­utes whilst Ryan Towner, for the vis­i­tors, put a shot just wide on 34 min­utes. The best chance of a goal­less first half fell to Mit­ford on 35 min­utes but his first ef­fort was thwarted by City keeper Char­lie Ban­nis­ter and his fol­low-up rolled ag­o­nis­ingly across goal.

The sec­ond half was only six min­utes old when a long clear­ance by Town keeper Ra­van Con­sta­ble was mis­judged by the City de­fence and Min­has was on it in a flash to fire past Ban­nis­ter.

The lead was short lived though as, on 56 min­utes, City lead­ing scorer Ryan Shar­man beat Con­sta­ble to a through-ball and fired home.

City ramped up the pres­sure with lots of pos­ses­sion, the hosts find­ing it hard to get time on the ball. Though Wes Daly and Mit­ford fired wide the vis­i­tors scored on 78 min­utes when hes­i­tancy in the Rams de­fence al­lowed James Hall to nip in.

A fine save by Con­sta­ble on 82 min­utes kept out City and a minute later The Rams were level, as a first-time cross by Scott Cousins was met by a clean, pow­er­ful vol­ley from Min­has to give Ban­nis­ter no chance.

Three min­utes later a Cousins cross was punched clear by Ban­nis­ter but fell to Min­has who again volleyed home to put Bea­cons­field in front and though there was a nail­bit­ing five min­utes of added time, the Rams de­fence stood strong to re­pel a tir­ing City.

It added up to not only a great re­sult for The Rams but a great team per­for­mance.

Do­ing the dou­ble over one of the league’s big­gest clubs keeps the Rams well po­si­tioned.
