Moles Go Down in Seven Goal Thriller

With Austin Schofield injured and Martin Griggs having returned to Risborough Rangers it was all change again for the Moles. The returning Ben Stevens partnered Jordan Jenkins in the centre of defence, Craig Carby returned at left back, Davis Haule partnered Jordan Frederick in midfield with Carl Tappin dropping to the bench.

It wasn't the greatest of starts for FC when after just forty seconds when BJ Christie latched onto a poor clearance and smashed home the half volley into the bottom left hand corner passed Nick Bennion. The home side almost doubled the lead on six minutes when it was Christie again who smashed a powerful effort which ricocheted off the underside of the bar but Ben Stevens was on hand to clear to safety.

On twenty eight minutes Ajayi played the ball across the box Christie was unmarked and slotted home from about a yard for his and Dunstable's second of the day. 2-0 and to supporters of both sides it looked like it was going to be a regular home win, but how wrong the small crowd at Creasey Park were to be.

FC got a foot back into the game courtesy of a howler from the Blues keeper Connor Sansom, on thirty eight minutes he spilled Harry Scott's long range free kick and the ball dribbled into the back of the net. The away side should have equalised on the stroke of half time, there was a melee in the Dunstable box after Sansom flapped again at another a Scott free kick, the ball fell to Davis Haule and his shot was heroically cleared off the line.

Half Time AFC Dunstable 2 Aylesbury FC 1

It was Aylesbury, with the bit between their teeth, that came steaming out in the second half and were level after just forty nine minutes. Ryan Young Young showed superb pace on the wing in skinning the full back, Brian Haule couldn't convert the cross but Dunstable defender Carney tucked it into his own net instead! FC had their tales up and three minutes later another cracking ball from Scott this time found the head of Davis Haule - leaping above the crowd but his header clipped the outside of the far post.

The goal though did come on fifty four minutes when Dan Carr and Harry Scott lined up well again down the right, Scott had his marker for breakfast, reached the byline before putting it on a plate for Ryan Young to score FC's third.

The Moles were now caught between capitalising on their dominance or protecting a valuable three points and on sixty nine minutes their indecision was punished by the blues when Leon Cashman headed home from close range for the equaliser. The excitement though hadn't finished for the small crowd. Bruno Brito seeing the keeper off the line tried to lob him from twenty five yards but the Sansom recovered to tip behind.

Sansom, who was having a shocking afternoon, almost made the biggest mistake of all, his poor kick landed straight at the feet of Brito who volleyed the ball straight back but it didn't quite have the legs to reach the Dunstable goal and the keeper just managed to catch it up before it crossed the line to clear to safety. Ten with a minute to go it was heartbreak for FC when Powel picked the ball up twenty yards out and fired an unstoppable shot past Bennion to take the three points in this breathless encounter
