Farleigh Rovers 1 CB Hounslow 3
What a diffrence a week makes, great last week and midweek and terrible this one.
Farleigh were without the injured Chris Asante, Kwaku Braams and Leon Worley.
Farleigh were nearly caught out within minutes when a long pass landed onto the feet of the Hounslow forward who forced a good save form Oliver Waiton. The foxes seemed to be still in the changing rooms and too often their passes went astray however they had a fantastic chance when wideman Nicky Meta beat his full back and crossed the ball to Nathaniel Turner who somehow hit his shot over when it seemed easier to score. As per usual, Farleigh were then punished but this time by two goals in ten minutes leaving them 2-0 down at the break.
The second half started better with Farleigh who pulled one back when captain Asone Patterson headed home a Meta corner. They got another chance within minutes when James Radford headed another Meta corner but this time the effort well just over the bar. The game was then put to bed when the Hounslow forward struck a fantastic effort from just inside the box past the helpless Waiton and with the game over Hounslow created even more chances that Waiton thwarted time and time again. Another great chance came Farleigh’s way when George Franks broke down the left and crossed to Turner who blasted the ball over from two yards out which pretty much summed up his and Farleigh’s day.
