BAN­BURY United ex­tended their un­beaten run to six games with a late penalty.

New Mag­pies boss Craig Laird saw his side’s own six­match run come to an end when Neil Martin han­dled a left-wing cross from Marvin Martin to con­cede an 86th-minute penalty which Mark Bell con­verted.

The match was de­void of goal­mouth action but not short on en­deav­our with Ban­bury al­ways look­ing the most likely winners. Dorch­ester carved out the first open­ing when Ben Wood’s cen­tre was met by Lewis Mor­gan who headed over.

A timely in­ter­ven­tion by Dorch­ester keeper Shane Mur­phy de­nied Cal­lum White a free run on goal.

Dorch­ester mid­fielder Franklyn Clarke pro­duced a fine dou­ble block to deny George Nash while Mur­phy saved a free-kick from Zac McEachran at the near post.

Be­fore the even­tual Ban­bury break­through, Mur­phy saved a low ef­fort from Martin Asiedu Ososu, then dived to claim a curl­ing ef­fort from Jack Self.

Ben Wood had a rare Dorch­ester shot dropped but Martin’s hand­ball en­sured a happy jour­ney home for Mike Ford’s side as they claimed all three points.
