The Moles edged out by Uxbridge

After what can only be described as a rollercoaster week for Aylesbury FC, the Moles travelled to the Honeycroft looking to make an impact on the pitch and put the events off the pitch behind them.

Report by Dan Legg

Manager Davis Haule resorted to a traditional 4-4-2 formation, playing himself and Harry Scott in the striker positions, replacing Brian Haule and Ty Deacon who was beginning his three-match suspension, whilst Davide Pobbe also returned to the team, replacing Alfi Touceda.
Unlike the reverse fixture earlier in the season, finishing in a 3-2 victory for the Moles, the game was one of very few chances. That being said, the deadlock was broken early on. With just eleven minutes on the clock Davis Haule used his experience, strength and vision to hold off his opposite number, and poke the ball through to Harry Scott, who used his lightning pace to break the defensive line of Uxbridge, finishing with great composure to chip the ball past Paul McCarthy to find the back of the net via the far post.
Ashley Jenkins had another solid game in the Aylesbury goal, making a number of fine reaction saves to thwart hotshot Dylan Kearney on multiple occasions, however, he wasn’t offered a prayer with the equalising goal, when Luke Maguire leapt high above Craig Carby and Garry Jones to convert Kearney’s pinpoint cross with a strong header at the back post.
Uxbridge started to see the momentum switch in their favour, and on 33 minutes the pressure finally told. Joe Fitzgerald was unable to cope with Cole Brown’s tricky feet and pace, and the winger was able to work his way to the byline, before picking out Kevin Warner who was on hand to give Uxbridge the lead with a tap in from mere yards.
The Moles almost found a way back into the contest before half time, with Davis Haule left feeling extremely hard done by. The gaffer found space for himself at the back post and Garry Jones picked him out with a delightful ball, who in turn hit a sweetly struck volley which had McCarthy beaten all ends up – the far post this time came to his rescue and rebounded straight into the grateful keeper’s arms.

The second half at the Honeycroft was an extremely forgettable one. With chances at a premium being an understatement. Kerran Lataille was offered a half-chance by Davide Pobbe, when he played a well-weighted through ball into the danger zone, Lataille looked to take it round McCarthy but the experienced goalkeeper was able to parry the ball behind for a corner.
A great second half defensive display from the FC back line, in particular man of the match Derek Feyi deputising competently for Ben Stevens, meant that the normally free scoring Uxbridge front line were kept relatively quiet, although Ashley Jenkins was called into action deep into the 90 minutes to save low down from Cole Brown giving FC a glimmer of hope to snatch something late on.
Alas, despite a late penalty shout after Harry Scott went down in the area, no such chance ever materialised, and Aylesbury came away from the match frustrated and empty handed despite the spirited performance.
