Horley Town v North Greenford United
We are into double figures for consecutive wins
With confidence sky high and our opponents at the wrong end of the table it would have been easy to see this game a a home banker. Thankfully the management and team ensured there was no complacency as a very good North Greenford United side produced a performance that threatened to put an end to our fantastic run.
Early on there were no signs of this as goals from Karl Parker
, Leyton Regan
and Alex Barbary
put us in what seemed to be an unasailable lead although our visitors remained a force even at three nil down. As always goals change games and immediately prior to the break a penalty awarded against us was converted at the second attempt after a fine save by George Hyde
to reduce our advantage.
The second half now had a different look to it and it was crying out for another home goal to relax the nerves. When that didnt arrive the focus shifted to stopping a very effective NGU attack , a job which was well done until two minutes into stoppage time when the arrears were reduced further. An unexpected further nine minutes didn't help as the game became littered with fouls and took on an altogether different look to the regulation ninety.
Thankfully Horley held firm and recorded an impressive tenth consecutive win.
