Su­per sub Ronny takes his chance for Moles

Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page -

MOLESEY beat a hard­work­ing Ash­ford United to record their first clean sheet of the sea­son.

Craig Lew­ing­ton was the first to go close when he found him­self with time in the box but flicked his header wide, while at the other end goal­keeper Liam Allen pro­duced a good save with his feet.

The Moles grew into the game with Olu Akin­sanya link­ing up well with Josh An­drew to al­low An­to­nio Sime­one a shoot­ing chance though he was off tar­get.

Manny Quarshie was a con­stant threat to the Ash­ford de­fence, yet it was Akin­sanya who forced a fine save from their keeper as the first half ended goal­less.

The hosts had the first at­tempt of the sec­ond half but Allen saved with his feet again be­fore Quarshie saw his shot blocked at the other end. Chances came and went for both sides with their re­spec­tive goal­keep­ers mak­ing good saves and play­ers putting their bod­ies on the line.

With both teams tir­ing, Moles man­ager Peter Lel­liott sent on Ron­ald Sobowale, who made an im­me­di­ate im­pact when he made his own space on the edge of the box and curled a shot into the back of the net.

Ashby Charles had a chance to dou­ble the lead from a tight an­gle but the ball some­how came away be­tween the Ash­ford keeper and wood­work.

Lel­liott said: “‘It wasn’t pretty, we changed our nor­mal style of play as I felt we needed a change for this game. We dug in and got the valu­able three points thanks to a great strike by Ronny.

“I am also pleased we are still cre­at­ing chances, but what is some­what dis­ap­point­ing at the mo­ment is we need to take these chances to give us some breath­ing space. With hard work in train­ing it will come.”
