The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK LEAGUE - By Chris Fowle

TOM RICHARDS stretched Leather­head’s re­mark­able league win­ning run to seven with his goal on the half-hour.

The game wasn’t great as a spec­ta­cle but the Tan­ners won’t care about that as they are now four points from the play-off places.

They nearly led on 12 min­utes but Jerry Nna­mani found Ton­bridge keeper Jon Henly in good form, as he blocked the cen­tre-back’s header from Sammy Moore’s free-kick.

Striker Tom Derry turned provider for the game’s only goal, his great cross set­ting up a lovely fin­ish from Richards into the bot­tom left hand corner of the net.

The An­gels nearly lev­elled five min­utes be­fore the break but striker Nathan Elder’s pow­er­ful header cleared the bar.

Derry headed Sean Clo­hessy’s cross over on half-time and Henly saved Moore’s pow­er­ful shot on 50 min­utes.

Eight min­utes later, Tan­ners keeper Zaki Oualah made his first key save, do­ing well to parry Tom Jel­ley’s ef­fort.

How­ever, Derry nearly sealed vic­tory a minute later, his header land­ing on the roof of the net.

Richards was nearly in for his sec­ond on 76 min­utes. And Ton­bridge rarely threat­ened an equaliser. STAR MAN: Tom Richards (Leather­head) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
