FIRST WIN DUN AND DUSTED!

The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK LEAGUE SOUTH - By Paul Har­ris

ANDREW Osei-Bensu struck 20 min­utes from time to hand Dunstable Town their first league win of the season at the ex­pense of in­jury-rav­aged Farnborough.

Vic­tory moved Town off the foot of the ta­ble but Dunstable first had to fend off early threat from their for­mer strike Con­nor Cal­cutt, who fired in two blocked shots and an­other nar­rowly wide.

Home keeper Casey Harker had a pleas­ing de­but with a clean sheet and some vi­tal saves to his credit.

Dunstable, how­ever, set­tled well and Arel Amu’s fine run saw his shot blocked and a fol­low-up cross from Clau­dio Silva saw young Boro keeper Ai­den Up­ward palm the ball clear, and he also made a notable save from Ryan Young.

Af­ter a goal­less first half, Dunstable looked like­lier to score in the early stages of the sec­ond pe­riod.

And iron­i­cally the goal even­tu­ally came from an er­ror by Up­ward who handed the chance to Osei-Bensu fol­low­ing a mis­un­der­stand­ing.

Osei-Bensu and Amu came close to dou­bling Dunstable’s lead – the lat­ter with a del­i­cate chip tipped over by Up­ward – while Josh Hug­gins went clos­est for Boro with an ef­fort which suf­fered the same fate.
