Ca­su­als fight back to earn the points

The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK LEAGUE PREMIER - By Mal­colm Parker

CA­SU­ALS turned around an early goal deficit to win this lo­cal derby.

Leatherhead started the match well and were ahead af­ter seven min­utes. A good move down the right saw Shaun Oko­jie free and his fierce shot could only be par­ried by keeper Danny Bracken to Jazz Wal­lace who side-footed home.

Ca­su­als came more into the game and War­ren Mfula found Gabrial Odunaike whose pow­er­ful ef­fort was well saved by keeper Zaki Oualah. Min­utes later Mfula’s drive was par­ried by Oualah to Odunaike who fired home.

On 31 min­utes the Corinthi­ans were level when Mu Maan’s su­perb through ball found Odunaike whose first time shot found the cor­ner of the net.

Just on half-time Leatherhead’s Travis Gre­gory fired in a dip­ping 25 yarder just over the bar.

Ca­su­als even­tu­ally be­gan to con­trol the play. On 61 min­utes they were ahead when a great team move saw Jue­van Spencer clear and his low cross was swept home by Odunaike.

Jor­dan Clarke dragged a shot wide and Reece Han­ni­gan should have done bet­ter.

In the last min­utes sub­sti­tute Max Old­ham’s su­perb run and cross was some­how cleared by Jerry Nnamini.

STAR MAN: Gabriel Odunaike (Ca­su­als) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
