Aylesbury FC 3 Uxbridge 2
Two League Wins in a week as FC deservedly take all three point
With James, Weatherill and Jonny Montgomery both still injured and with Aston Goss, Ben Stevens and Brian Haule all unavailable Manager Davis Haule again had to shuffle the pack and show the depth of his new squad. Ashley Jenkins again kept goal, Derek Feyi replaced Stevens in defence and Ty Deacon returned to the centre of the forward line with Harry Scott on the right of the front three. David Pobbe was added to the squad along with Joe Fitzgerald on the bench.
After the excellent performance on Tuesday in beating Marlow it was a bit like after the lord majors show, there just wasn't the same urgency about the FC play, with very little shape and structure to the game and neither side was really able to get a foothold. The game was strewn with errors, after four minutes a goal kick was mishit by Ashley Jenkins along the ground and came to Uxbridge's Joe Wright but his snap shot flew wide with Jenkins scrambling to get back. As the half progressed though, the impressive Shayne Almond took more and more control of the game and was involved in nearly everything the Moles created, after eighteen minutes he picked up the ball on the left side of the field, cut inside and hit a low shot with was parried by Keeper McArthy and the onrushing Harry Scott was unable to find the final touch.
Almond was again involved two minutes later this time with some nice interplay with Kieron Schmidt on the left, Almond's final ball in found Ty Deacon but again FC were foiled by the Uxbridge keeper. The away stopper made another fantastic save on twenty eight minutes, Shayne Almond found the overlapping Craig Carby with a through ball and his cross from the left was hit by Deacon but Mcarthy somehow kept it out. Moles fans were now asking if the side again was to rue all these missed chances. Uxbridge had their best chance on thirty five minutes when Joe Wright bent a ball in which Ashley Jenkins in the home goal palmed away for a corner. Aylesbury should have broken the deadlock just as the half was ending when Harry Scott's ball in couldn't be put away by either Deacon or Almond and the halrf finished all sqaure.
FC needn't have worried though as straight from the kick off a ball over the top from Craig Carby found Ty Deacon, who beat one man and then sensationally chipped the keeper from the edge of the box to give Aylesbury a deserved lead. That lead should have been extended when five minutes later Shayne Almond again put in a fantastic cross which Jeanmal Prosper met on the volley but yet again the ball was kept out by McArthy. The home side did make their advantage pay though when a short corner found Almond with the ball and his cross was met by Jordan Jenkins who headed home to make it 2-0.
Aylesbury now looked in complete control and comfortable but a goal out of the blue by Dylan Kearney bought Uxbridge back into the game. On sixty eight minutes the two goal lead was restored when Prosper was bought down on the edge of the box, man of the match Shayne Almond stepped up and fired the ball over the wall and into the top left corner. That should have been that, but yet again as in so many games this season Aylesbury have conceded sloppy goals and today was no exception, with just a minute to go of normal time and the home side attacking, FC lost possession and a ball over the top found Kearney bearing down on goal and he slipped the ball past Jenkins to give Aylesbury a nervous four minutes of injury time which they came through to enjoy their second league win of the week.
