Aylesbury FC 0 AFC Dunstable 2

Moles slip to their second defeat of the season

Two goals in the first half gave the visitors all three points at Haywood Way. Manager Scott Reynolds was forced to make some changes in defence with Jordan Jenkins away, Austin Schofield and Craig Carby were both injured at the weekend and so Jon Munday was drafted in from Northwood for the game, David Femiola slipped in at Right Back and Luke Cray moved to the left side of defence.

The home side were immediately under pressure as Dunstable came at The Moles right from the off and after just seven minutes they took the lead when a ball in the from the left found Nathan Frater in space in the Aylesbury penalty area and the big striker beat Nick Bennion as he struck the ball across the FC keeper and into the net.

Aylesbury started to at least get a foothold in the game without really creating any clear chances, after ten minutes Aaron King clipped in a nice ball into the area but Kyle Johnson was beaten to the ball by a defender and the chance came to nothing. Dunstable then had a golden opportunity to double their lead when midway through the half, Nick Bennion came for a cross, only managed to half clear it to a Dunstable striker, the ball was fired across the goal but Luke Cray calmly cleared the ball to safety.

The away side did eventually get their second when an innocuous ball over the top of the Aylesbury defence was pounced on by Joel Norris and he lashed the ball passed Bennion

Bennion was twice more bought into the action before the break, the first was a superb point blank save and then he pushed away a pile driver free kick from Ryan Frater.

Half Time 0-2

The second half saw the Moles come out with renewed vigor and on fifty two minutes Aaron King had a shot which fizzed past the post, Ryan Ware had a shot which cleared the cross bar and on sixty six minutes Aylesbury's best chance saw Kyle Johnson fire over from six yards after meeting a cross from Temi Oladejo.

Dunstable still had their opportunities and when Luke Cray was adjudged to have bought down a Dunstable striker in the box it seemed that a third goal was inevitable especially as the penalty taker was the prolific goalscorer Drew Roberts, but the striker stepped up and blasted his spot kick high and wide.

A tough start for The Moles but the second half performance against a lively Dunstable side will give Scott Reynolds and the management team room for optimism going into the FA Cup game at Didcot on Saturday.
