Promising League Start Continues

Angus grabs his sixth league goal of the season.

THE REDS continued their promising start in the Evo-Stik South Premier with a battling victory against Chesham United.

Defender Orrin Pendley and Spencer Weir-Daley put Redditch ahead in the first half before Chesham’s Matt Bevans reduced the deficit.

Dior Angus grabbed his sixth league goal of the season to seal the points late on, meaning the Reds have won four of their six opening league fixtures.

After a tentative first quarter of an hour at the Trico Stadium, the hosts struck first thanks to some poor goalkeeping from Chesham’s Hafed Al-Droubi.

The stopper came for a corner but completely missed the ball, allowing Reds defender Pendley to smash into an empty net in the 16th minute.

Darren Byfield’s men doubled their lead six minutes later. Weir-Daley brought down Pendley’s ball over the top and with Al-Droubi in no man’s land, the experienced forward lifted his shot into the net from the edge of the area for his fifth league strike of the campaign.

With the Reds looking comfortable, Chesham got back into the game in the 25th minute. Big midfielder Bevans fired in a low effort from 25 yards that beat keeper Ethan Ross.

Chesham began the second half searching for the equaliser and both David Hutton and Danny Green found loanee Ross in inspired form.
Angus was a thorn in Chesham’s side all afternoon and he fired just wide after using his pace to run clear.

Reds boss Byfield introduced defender Marcel Simpson and went with three centre-backs to shore things up with Chesham pushing.

Attacking midfielder Andi Thanoj’s effort from distance was then tipped onto the post by Al-Droubi but United made the points safe in the 77th minute.; Nathan Fox’s brilliant cross found Angus ten yards out and despite Al-Droubi’s best efforts, the striker’s header trickled over the line.

The win ensures the Reds still have a 100 per cent record at home this season, leaving them fifth in the Evo-Stik South Premier table ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Banbury.
