WELLING UNITED 2 EAST THUR­ROCK U 0

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Mark Doig

WELLING ex­tended their un­beaten league run with a work­man­like vic­tory.

Tom Derry’s header come back off the bar and Dan Wilks made an ex­cel­lent save from Ro­man Michael-Per­cil but af­ter that Welling dom­i­nated the first pe­riod.

They went ahead in the 16th minute when an ex­cel­lent Jack Jebb cor­ner found Bren­dan Kier­nan at the far post and he scored.

Ten min­utes later, Welling went two up. Bril­liant hold up play by Danny Mills al­lowed him to get it out to Craig Bra­ham-Bar­rett who found Jack Jebb on the edge of the area. He looked up and picked his spot be­fore fir­ing home.

Jack Gid­dens made a good save from Bradley Goldberg be­fore Welling missed a great chance to ex­tend their lead. Kier­nan was clipped in the penalty area by Tom Stephen but Goldberg’s penalty lacked con­vic­tion and was saved.

Af­ter the break it was a bit tighter with nei­ther team hav­ing clear cut chances un­til Wilks made a stun­ning save from Derry’s shot.

It was then Gid­dens’ turn when he made three out­stand­ing saves in quick suc­ces­sion with Goldberg, Danny Mills and Kier­nan guilty.

Kier­nan had a late ef­fort hit the post and goal­keeper as Welling saw the game out in rel­a­tive com­fort.

STAR MAN: Gid­dens (Thur­rock) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
