The Fly­ers give it a lit­tle bit of ex­tra!

The Non-League Football Paper - - SATURDAY MATCH CENTRE - By Wayne Allen

LYE Town ran riot with four ex­tra-time goals to light up what had been a scrappy tie dis­rupted by in­jury.

There was lit­tle to stir the senses dur­ing the 90 min­utes with Jack Till’s pair of chances for the hosts go­ing beg­ging dur­ing the first half.

Open­ings re­mained at a pre­mium af­ter the break and play was halted for half an hour due to a nasty in­jury suf­fered by Leighton’s Dom Marsala.

The vis­i­tors looked brighter af­ter that, al­beit without threat­en­ing a break­through and an­other 30 min­utes was re­quired but as soon as Lye broke through, there was no stop­ping them.

Josh McKen­zie fi­nally forced in the opener af­ter a cross had both teams scram­bling in front of goal with Adam Meacham head­ing in a floated cor­ner to dou­ble the lead.

The game was up when Leighton left-back Matt Brady was given his march­ing or­ders for a sec­ond book­able of­fence and the gaps started to open.

Ben Billing­ham waltzed through to notch a fine solo goal be­fore Luke Carter made the most of some neat ap­proach play to force across Jones and round off the scor­ing.
