Wings hit back thanks to Mills


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

DANNY MILLS’ late goal earned Welling United a de­served point in a hard-fought game with Weald­stone.

Chances were few in a phys­i­cal first half. Con­nor Stevens headed over from Joe Payne’s cross be­fore he put the vis­i­tors ahead in the 21st minute. A cor­ner was half-cleared and Stevens was given space to fire home.

Jake Shep­pard for Weald­stone and Matthew Pater­son of Welling were off tar­get be­fore Bradley Bubb went on a good run but shot into the sidenet­ting.

Af­ter the in­ter­val Welling had a goal dis­al­lowed for a foul on Jonathan North be­fore David Pratt was thwarted by a bril­liant save from goal­keeper Dan Wilks.

Mills then came on giv­ing Welling more pres­ence up front. Bren­dan Kier­nan volleyed over and when Nas­sim L’Ghoul’s run wasn’t fin­ished by a Thierry Audel goal it started to look as if their ef­forts would be un­re­warded.

How­ever, as stop­page time ap­proached, Mon­tel Agye­mang went on a run and his pass found Mills, who obliged with a crisp fin­ish, and Craig Bra­ham-Bar­rett might have won it for Welling but his curler went wide.
