Angus Double Turn's Game

Red's return to winning ways in the league

Two goals in five minutes secure a first win in three league matches at Kings Langley.

The Reds had been frustrating for much of the opening 70 minutes, Kings Langley having taken an early lead from the penalty spot, with Redditch unable to make much impression on the hosts's goal.

However once they got into their stride they would finish with a final quarter flourish, spearheaded by Angus, who leveled the scores from close range before winning and converting the match clinching penalty.

The Reds were up against it from the tenth minute when the hosts were awarded a penalty, striker Mitchell Weiss tangling with Orrin Pendley, contact referee Paul Johnson judged worthy of a penalty, Dean Hitchcock stepping up to send Ethan Ross the wrong way.

Whilst looking for a quick fire response, it almost got worse as Kings Langley missed a glorious chance to make it 2-0 on the counter when striker Gareth Price lifted the ball into the Reds box but Weiss could only skew his half volley wide.

Danny Jackman had Redditch's first sight of goal but as a free-kick was cleared as far as the skipper, his volley comfortably cleared the bar, whilst they couldn't make the most of a couple of dangerous positions, with set piece delivery lacking.

Only a fine Ross save kept the deficit at one as Brendan Ocran's free-kick looked to be arrowing into the top corner, but the stopper reached high to palm it away.

Ten minutes before half time Dior Angus turned to find some space on the edge of his box, but although his effort was on target, it lacked any power to trouble Ross Hampton in the home goal.

Hitchcock had a shot blocked after the Reds failed to clear a corner, whilst from a corner of their own Pendley rose highest at the back post but his header went wide as the early penalty would prove the only goal of the first half.

The hosts twice went close as the second half began in a scrappy vain, first Callum Adebiyi glanced a header wide before Keiran Turner was able to run onto a long ball, his low shot saved by Ross.

Angus was proving to be the most likely outlet as the Reds belatedly came into the game and quick feet created a shooting chance which was deflected wide.

The resulting corner wasn't cleared and when Andi Thanoj whipped in a powerful free-kick no-one was able to get a touch as Hampton gathered.

Kevin Da Veiga Monteiro replaced Pauly Apostolopoulos on the hour mark and looked to make a quick impact as a deep cross found him unmarked, and his half volley whistled narrowly over the bar.

Having enjoyed their best spell of the game, the reward finally came on 72 minutes from a fine passing move, Spencer Weir-Daley on the byline squaring for Angus to turn in the equaliser from close range.

The match would be turned on it's head as Redditch won a spot kick of their own five minutes later, Angus involved again as he reached a long ball before keeper Hampton, who took out the Reds striker inside the box.

Angus stepped up himself and lifted the penalty high into the roof of the net as a frustrating 70 minutes was quickly forgotten.

There was a worrying moment as Kings Langley almost found an intimidate response, a free-kick lifted in causing a goalmouth scramble, but the Reds were able to eventually clear.

Weir-Daley had the chance to make the result safe as the ball fell to him on the edge of the box, but Hampton was out quickly to block his effort before as the clock ticked past 90, he shot straight at the keeper.

The hosts would create one final opening but Gareth Price's header rather hit his head and flew wide, the full time whistle following as the Reds went back to winning ways.
