The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK NORTH & SOUTH - By Benn Phillips

ASH­FORD United’s 9-1 de­feat to Cray just five weeks ago was con­signed to the past as they picked up a vi­tal home win this time around.

A freez­ing af­ter­noon at Home­lands may have had an ef­fect on the play­ers’ per­for­mances, with the qual­ity on show noth­ing like the pre­vi­ous meet­ing.

Re­venge was never on the cards in this fix­ture as the Nuts and Bolts opened the scor­ing through Daniel Ajakaiye af­ter just six min­utes.

Cray, who are now fourth, lev­elled up when Bran­don Scott slot­ted home.

But a sec­ond for debu­tant Daniel Ajakaiye sent the Ash­ford fans into rap­tures and at full-time you could sense de­light from all the home fans.
