YATE TOWN 2 BIDEFORD 0
Bideford slipped to a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Yate Town on Tuesday night.
The Robins struggled to make much of a dent on the Yate backline and Steve Oliver has to be on his toes to at the other end to keep the home side at bay in the first half. Yate were inches away from taking the lead when Ross Langworthy’s shot came back off the post while Bideford’s best chance was Ben Carter’s strike which stung the hands of Lewis Thomas.
Yate did go in front early in the second half as Jack Twyman broke and played in Langworthy who shot low past Oliver. With The Robins still struggling to turn their possession into much of a threat Yate made the game safe on 83 minutes. Oliver came rushing out of his area to clear but only found Nick Peare on the halfway line who sent the ball back over the stranded Bideford keeper and into the net to sum up the visitors night.
Bideford: Oliver, Sampson, Mayne, Allan, Gregory, Wood (Western 50), Bye, Carter, Tucker, Squire (Hancox 73), Turner (Haynes 59).
Goals: Langworthy 47, Peare 83
