Ash Utd 3-0 Sheerwater
1st Team Manager, Daniel Bishop's Match Report
We entertained Sheerwater who are having a great season and were in the top three prior to kick off, however we were in buoyant mood as we were currently on eight straight wins.
The game plan was to get at Sheerwater straight from the whistle, so we started the game in flying fashion and were threatening with every attack. It didn’t take long to take the lead as Richard Lediju pounced on a poor back pass and rifled a shot into the top corner 1 – 0.
We were attacking in numbers and Richard Lediju was causing problems with his quick feet and pace and it was his trickery that brought about a penalty, as the keeper brought him down in the box. Neil Hardy stepped up to coolly make it 2 – 0. We were now in complete control and Sheerwater were continuing to play a high line. We grabbed a third just after the half hour mark as Richard Lediju went through one on one and rounded the keeper before tucking home into the bottom corner. 3 – 0. This brought about two substitutions from Sheerwater in an attempted to try and turn around the game. 3 – 0 at half time. It was a great first half and the only disappointing thing was we were not six or seven goals up.
We started the second half in similar fashion. We completely controlled the second half as Sheerwater tried to amount a comeback, but the defence stayed strong for another clean sheet. Final score 3 – 0.
Another top draw performance and a thoroughly deserved 3 points, with the run of wins now extending to 9 games. We entertain Old Wokingians in the Surrey Premier Cup on Tuesday night.
