United sec­ond best as they turn in poor dis­play against ri­vals

Gloucestershire Echo - - FOOTBALL -

» EVESHAM United fans were left be­mused as they saw their side turn in a poor per­for­mance as they went down 2-0 at home to play-off ri­vals Winch­ester City.

Both sides made an at­tempt to play some good pass­ing and at­tack­ing foot­ball un­til Winch­ester got their open­ing goal in the 10th minute.

They had had an op­por­tu­nity just a minute be­fore when Mlambo’s shot went over the bar hav­ing in­ter­cepted a poor ball be­ing played out of the Evesham de­fence.

But they made no er­ror when a pass into the box was met by their cap­tain Jamie Bar­ron who was able to get a shot off from six yards and man­aged to squeeze the ball un­der Han­nah.

With Evesham un­able to cap­i­talise on the few mis­takes that Winch­ester were mak­ing, the home sup­port­ers were be­com­ing more rest­less as their seemed to be no con­sis­tency in The Robins game.

With the vis­i­tors play­ing the bet­ter and more at­tack­ing foot­ball it was no sur­prise that they took their sin­gle­goal lead into the half-time break.

The sec­ond half of­fered very lit­tle more in the way of flu­ent foot­ball from the hosts, yet an­other poor pass out of the Evesham de­fence gave Mlambo an­other chance, but he scuffed his shot with the ball go­ing wide of the post.

Evesham’s only real op­por­tu­nity of the sec­ond half came through a Kane Simpson free-kick in the 67th minute.

But his shot from 20 yards went straight into the vis­it­ing goal­keeper’s hands.

The home fans’ mis­ery was dou­bled on 78 min­utes when a header down the cen­tre of the box found sub­sti­tute Tyrell Mit­ford.

His flick was enough to find the back of the net and send move Winch­ester with­ing two points of the play-off zone with games in hand.
