IT’S DOU­BLE TROU­BLE AS MUITT HITS HIS STRIDE

The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK LEAGUE PREMIER - By Sam Rat­tle

SI­MON Wor­mull made three changes from the Burgess Hill side which started the goal­less draw with Folke­stone In­victa last Satur­day – but it did lit­tle to turn things around as Jimmy Muitt’s doubnle added to their mis­ery.

The Hil­lians started brightly, with Cor­reia fir­ing just over fol­low­ing some good link-up play with Cad­man, af­ter just eight min­utes.

McCollin was first to test keeper Dan Lin­coln, as the Rocks stop­per got down sharply.

Muitt had the vis­i­tors’ first chance, head­ing over the cross­bar from close range, while the Hil­lians’ best chance fell to Rich­mond, whose header was some­how cleared off the line.

James some­how kept Muitt’s header out as the vis­i­tors’ threat­ened and on 56 min­utes Muitt opened the scor­ing from the penalty spot af­ter the ref­eree pe­nalised Jonah.

Both sides en­joyed spells of pos­ses­sion in the sec­ond pe­riod, with nei­ther fash­ion­ing many clear-cut chances.

As the game headed into its fi­nal 15 min­utes, the Hil­lians be­gan to rally, with Lin­coln pro­duc­ing no fewer than three top saves to deny Wor­mull’s men.

The Rocks sur­vived the Hil­lians on­slaught, be­fore break­ing into an at­tack of their own, as Muitt dou­bled his tally in in­jury time to seal home the points. STAR MAN: Jimmy Muitt (Bognor Regis) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
