Horley Town v Redhill

Bank Holiday Bliss

Bank Holiday Monday saw us entertain rivals and near neighbours , Redhill , on a glorious morning in front of a decent crowd.

In need of a result , Horley started anxiously and it was the visitors who in the early stages enjoyed more of the ball and carried the greater threat.

As the nerves began to settle and we came to grips with the visitors tactics , we began to get a foothold in the game but without ever really troubling the Redhill goal keeper.

It was just about right that the two sides went in level at the break , although no doubt that was largely due to George Hyde who made two fine saves in the first period when the home defence was found wanting. I'm sure the visitors would argue they should have been in front.

The second half was different again , as we began in a brighter fashion and started to play more fluently with some neat controlled passing moves.
The opening goal came from a set piece when Butch Smith's corner was headed on for Ryan Brackpool to stab home at the back post. A welcome goal at the right time.

Redhill carried a greater urgency after going behind and to be fair carved out one or two chances , but their desire to get something from the game made them too direct in their approach play often turning over the ball to us and allowed us the opportunity to play a counter attacking style when in possession. We were certainly now good value for the lead and looking equally as likely to score as the visitors. There were chances at both ends either missed or saved and this lead to the usual frantic last ten minutes when the game was still up for grabs. Redhill came the closest very late on when George Hyde made another fine save and as a result the three points came our way.
