DAVIES JOY AF­TER LATE PEN DE­NIES THE BUCKS

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - By Ben God­dard

UNITED were de­nied a sixth straight home vic­tory thanks to a 94thminute penalty that can­celled out Mar­cus Di­nanga’s strike.

Rob Ed­wards’ men wasted sev­eral first-half chances, how­ever a Ryan Wilson hand­ball handed the Sand­grounders a last-gasp penalty scored by Nathan Lowe.

Bucks could have led in the sixth minute when Henry Cowans’s cor­ner was headed out to Jor­dan Mur­phy but his shot flew just wide.

Mur­phy was then in again, con­trol­ling a Wilson cross be­fore blaz­ing over. Cowans’s set pieces again caused prob­lems, float­ing a cross into the box be­fore Jonathan Royle slid the ball wide.

Telford led af­ter 40 min­utes when an in­ter­cep­tion by Royle set up a counter-at­tack with El­liot Newby thread­ing Di­nanga in to slot home.

South­port’s new man­ager Kevin Davies saw a much-im­proved sec­ond­half per­for­mance with Jas­bir Singh forced into an early save be­fore Ross Sykes headed over.

Lowe should have equalised af­ter an hour af­ter Brad Jack­son played him through inside the box but his shot was over.

Then in the 94th minute ref­eree Thomas Par­sons judged that Wilson had han­dled a cross and Lowe coolly slot­ted home the re­sult­ing penalty. STAR MAN: Jor­dan Mur­phy (AFC Telford United) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
