WINGS CLIP CRUSADERS TO GO TOP OF THE PILE

The Non-League Football Paper - - SATURDAY MATCH CENTRE - By Mark Doig

WELLING UNITED 3 HUNGER­FORD TOWN 1

COM­ING into the game, Welling were third and Hunger­ford third-from­bot­tom but the hosts were pushed hard be­fore com­ing out de­served win­ners to go top.

Chances were few and far be­tween in the first half and only a Thierry Audel header that was tipped over threat­ened ei­ther goal in the open­ing half an hour.

How­ever, Welling’s next at­tempt broke the dead­lock. Danny McNa­mara went on a strong run be­fore find­ing Nas­sim L’Ghoul. He played it in­side to Bradley Gold­berg, who spun to shoot home from 20 yards.

Hunger­ford equalised on the stroke of half­time when Danilo Or­siDadomo held it up and found Matt Jones to fire home at the near post.

Af­ter the break, there was far more ac­tion and Ja­cob Weaver made a save from L’Ghoul be­fore he and Gold­berg both came close.

Fur­ther chances came Welling’s way be­fore they even­tu­ally went ahead. Sub­sti­tute Danny Mills headed back across goal and L’Ghoul came in bravely at the far post to bun­dle home.

And Welling in­creased their lead in the 90th minute when three subs com­bined.

Mon­tel Agye­mang swung over the cor­ner, Gavin McCallum knocked it back across goal and Mills was on hand to knock it home.
