Leiston see off late come­back

The Non-League Football Paper - - SOUTHERN PREMIER CENTRAL - By Craig Cooper

LEISTON de­feated St Neots Town at Vic­tory Road to gain an­other three points.

Kyle Ham­mond fired wide a free-kick af­ter just two min­utes in the first chance.

Gary Whar­ton was then put through on goal but he dragged his shot wide of Mar­cus Garn­ham’s post.

A de­cent cross from Joe Jef­ford was met by Harry Knights but his header hit the post. Harry Knights then re­cieved a straight red card for a foul on Jor­dan NorvilleWil­liams but this didn’t af­fect the hosts.

Cap­tain Tom Bullard headed against the cross­bar, be­fore Pa­trick Broth­ers gave the home side the lead af­ter a great run and fin­ish.

By­ron Lawrence had a close range ef­fort saved by Fin­lay Iron and Joe Jef­ford nod­ded just wide.

Just six min­utes into the sec­ond pe­riod, De­vante Stan­ley was red carded.

Christy Finch fired a long range shot just wide, but Noel Aitkens fin­ished off a great move to dou­ble Leiston’s lead on 57 min­utes.

Seb Dun­bar’s run from the left flank ended with the left back nar­rowly putting the ball off tar­get.

Leiston dom­i­nated the re­main­der although St Neots could have scored in the fi­nal minute but Whar­ton was de­nied by a good Mar­cus Garn­ham save, but it was too lit­tle to late.
