St Al­bans are on the march


The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Jake El­la­cott

ST AL­BANS City made it three wins on the bounce with a com­fort­able vic­tory against Con­cord Rangers.

It was the vis­i­tors who started the game the brighter of the two sides,, shad­ing pos­ses­sion and go­ing close to grab­bing the opener just af­ter the half hour mark — but Dean Sned­ker made an im­pres­sive re­ac­tion save at al­most point-blank range to deny Alex Wall.

That chance proved to be a chang­ing point in the game, with the home side tak­ing the lead ten min­utes later.

The Saints worked the ball down the left and Ben Wy­att marched into the box, but the ball broke loose and fell to David Noble, who took a touch and sent a well­struck drive past Beas­ant and into the bot­tom cor­ner.

The hosts al­most dou­bled their lead on the hour mark when Moyo cut to his right foot around ten yards out and struck a ven­omous drive, but the ef­fort crashed off the bar and the vis­i­tors man­aged to clear.

How­ever, they didn’t have to wait long to fi­nally get that sec­ond and fi­nal goal and it came with 15 min­utes left on the clock when Percy Kiangebeni picked the ball up on the edge of the box and dinked past three de­fend­ers be­fore slot­ting the ball un­der Beas­ant, se­cur­ing all three points.

STAR MAN: Percy Kiangebeni (St Al­bans) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
