Mo­tor Men roll on and dim Star

The Non-League Football Paper - - FA VASE 2ND ROUND - By David Ballheimer

REDBRIDGE had to live on their nerves in the sec­ond half be­fore they fi­nally saw off Peter­bor­ough North­ern Star.

The Mo­tor Men had plenty of chances in the first half, but only man­aged to con­vert one.

Af­ter three min­utes, Sa­muel Phillips had a low drive that was saved com­fort­ably by Quincy Sho­runmu.

Jack Steven­son’s pass play­ing Ash­ley Black­burn through on 31 min­utes and he found the opener when his curled ef­fort hit the back of the net.

In the sec­ond half, Peter­bor­ough upped their tempo and had a cou­ple of chances, with Josh Rosser very un­lucky when he smashed a shot off the post with Lewis Greene well beaten.

In the 83rd minute, Liam Rod­den nearly equalised fol­low­ing a free kick move, but Greene made a fine save.

How­ever, Rod­den should have done a great deal bet­ter ear­lier when he lofted the ball over the bar from less than six yards out.

Larry Asare could have scored twice for Star but first he dal­lied over his shot and then he struck the post when it was eas­ier to score – although Red­bride had done enough to seal the tie.
