PAULTON UN­ABLE TO HALT LEAD­ERS

The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK LEAGUE SOUTHERN CENTRAL AND - By Tony Walsh

HERE­FORD had to come from a goal down to beat Paulton Rovers to main­tain their grip on top spot of the league ta­ble.

Paulton made a great start af­ter four min­utes when Jor­dan Rick­etts wrig­gled free and slid the ball home.

Rovers stop­per Keiran Hodges then made a su­perb save from a Mike Sy­mons shot af­ter the ball was chested into his path by John Mills.

Sy­mons lev­elled on 15 min­utes af­ter a run by Aus­tralian right back Jimmy Oats found Tris­tan Plum­mer.

Oats’ low cross was turned home by the Here­ford striker.

Four min­utes later the Bulls went ahead af­ter Mike McGrath’s right wing cor­ner was headed home by Clay­ton For­tune.

Hodges then saved from Mills and was out quickly again soon af­ter­wards to blunt the same player.

Here­ford made it 3-1 on 72 min­utes as Jamie Molyneux and Mills com­bined to set up Plum­mer to fire home.

In the fi­nal min­utes Rovers cen­tre back Joe Chandler hit a sweet shot nar­rowly over the bar with Har­ris beaten.
