Moors bounce back against Bulls

Sunday Sun - - Football -

SPENNYMOOR Town bounced back from last week­end’s FA Cup exit at the hands of Wit­ton Al­bion with an im­pres­sive win at 10-man Here­ford FC.

The Bulls started the brighter of the two sides at Edgar Street but it was the Moors that took the lead against the run of play mid­way through the first half.

Glen Tay­lor’s header found Mark An­der­son and the mid­fielder smashed a pow­er­ful ef­fort past the hosts’ keeper Martin Horsell.

Here­ford were re­duced to 10 men just a minute later as Cal­lum Sainty was dis­missed for a strong chal­lenge on Rob Ramshaw.

That gave the Moors the up­per hand and they dou­bled their lead on the brink of half-time when Tay­lor turned from cre­ator to goalscorer by calmly rolling the ball be­yond the ad­vanc­ing Horsell af­ter good work from Stephen Bro­gan.

The dom­i­nance con­tin­ued af­ter half-time and sub­sti­tute An­drew John­son and Shaun Tu­ton came close to ex­tend­ing the lead to three in the open­ing 15 min­utes.

The hosts were of­fer­ing lit­tle as the Moors were happy to keep pos­ses­sion, much to the de­light of the im­pres­sive trav­el­ling sup­port.

And they were re­warded with a third goal on 86 min­utes.

John­son con­tin­ued to threaten the Bulls de­fence and his low cross from the left found sub­sti­tute Adam Boyes, who made no mis­take from close range and rounded off a fine day of work by the Moors.

The three points move Ja­son Ains­ley’s men up to fourth in the Na­tional League North ta­ble and se­cured their third league win in a row.
