Long day against Crendon

Town leave it late to go through

Lydney took a long time to book their place in the next round of the Bluefin Supplementary Cup on Saturday, finding the net twice in the final 10 minutes.
Although the Oxfordshire visitors ply their trade 2 divisions below Town they arrived following 12 consecutive wins and topped the Division 2 East league table.
For Town, striker Declan Morley-Lyne pulled out in the pre match warm up, so Lewis Thompson, back after suspension started up top with Ross Gabriel. Jack Rutter, Matt Board, Frankie Johnson, Keelan Hamblett and Pete Macklin made up the bench.
The first half was nothing to write home about, Lydney, enjoying more possession, created a couple of half chances. Keeper Collingwood making a decent save from a Gabriel header and Thompson thumped a good chance over the bar. The teams went in 0-0 at the break.

The second period followed a similar pattern to the first with Lydney forcing the pace. For the visitors, Archie Pettingwell and Billy Lane threatened the Town goal most but keeper Rich Thomas had only to make a few routine saves. In front of him, Sam Elliott and the outstanding Tom Handley ensured the Crendon goal threat was kept to a minimum.

With the game facing another half hour of extra time Lydney sent on Pete Macklin and finally made the break through. Some tricky footwork from Cheltenham loanee Camden Duncan down the right flank saw his cross nudged home by Lewis Thompson for his 20th of the season. Rutter then replaced Duncan.

It was all Town now and Sam Elliott brought a fantastic save from George Collingwood who palmed out his goalbound header. The keeper was beaten for a second time in the 85th minute. With the ball bobbling around just inside the Crendon half, Town full back Tom Baldwin attempted an audacious lob that dropped into the net over Collingwood's head. Matt Board came on for Sheppard as Lydney looked for a third. The visitors battled hard to deny them and were still putting in some crunching tackles as the final whistle went.
