Tay­lor tri­umphs to aid Wan­der­ers win

The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK LEAGUE PREMIER - By Liam Good­ley

IN A con­tro­ver­sial match that saw plenty of ac­tion, it all came down to a free kick to de­cide the win­ner be­tween Bog­nor Regis Town FC and Dork­ing Wan­der­ers.

It was Wan­der­ers who pre­vailed 1-0 cour­tesy of the boot of Lewis Tay­lor who curled his free kick low and around the wall keep­ing it out of reach of sub­sti­tute keeper Ri­cardo Teix­eira for what proved to be the win­ner.

The free-kick it­self was sur­rounded in con­tro­versy as keeper Dan Lin­coln was shown a red card for han­dling the ball out­side of the box and they were pun­ished again im­me­di­ately af­ter­wards.

The home side did well not to al­low an­other goal to be scored play­ing a man down and un­der the cosh for much of the sec­ond half of this en­counter.

With four min­utes of added time, the Rocks had an op­por­tu­nity to draw level as Jimmy Muitt swung in a dan­ger­ous free-kick from wide right.

It wasn’t to be how­ever, de­spite calls for a hand­ball the ref­eree didn’t agree, as the Rocks slipped to a sec­ond home de­feat in five days.

With a trip to Kingsto­nian coming up next Satur­day, the Rocks will need to gather them­selves for what will be a cru­cial match in the con­text of their en­tire sea­son.
