Lobsters Score Four Without Reply

3 weeks ago By Charlie Bright

Kery Kedze set the Reds on their way to a comfortable victory, with a stunning strike.

Redhill scored three first half goals to send them on their way to maximum points, and move 9 points clear of visitors Chertsey.

Gavin Gordon picked Tevon Webster to lead the Reds attack, while Mo Diakite played just behind the front man. Gavin Long slipped into an unfamiliar right back role, and Jacob Mendy-Mendy replaced Fred Hill at left back.

The Lobsters started brightly, Kery Kedze and Gary Abisogun looking dangerous on either flank. Kedze nearly found an opener on 8 minutes, his shot flashing just wide. Then Abisogun showed great power to burst through he found Kedze who's cross was nearly turned in by Tevon Webster.

Kedze did open the scoring on 26 minutes, cutting inside onto his right foot, the pacey winger 25 yards out struck an unstoppable shot into the top corner. The Curfews had their best spell of the game after the goal, with Jon Trotter making a great tackle to keep the Reds lead intact. Then Rhys Hughes had to make two smart stops to deny the visitors, one from a free kick.

The visitors good spell came to nothing though, and they were punished by the Lobsters. Gavin Long done well on the right, with the ball finally falling at Mo Diakites feet, he couldn't miss and the Reds had a 2-0 lead. With half time approaching Redhill tightened their grip on the game. A dangerous corner was turned in on the volley by Mendy-Mendy, and Redhill had seemed to have wrapped up the points before the break.

The second period went a bit flat on a cold afternoon at Kiln Brow, but the Reds always had control of this encounter. They could have added to their lead on 55 minutes, Ashley Snadden finding sub Tony Halsey who went close. Tevon Webster also went close to netting on his return to the starting line up, but for a brilliant block by a Chertsey defender.

Kedze had the ball in the net for the second time on 71 minutes, nicking the ball away from a defender and slotting home. Unfortunately the referee saw an infringement and disallowed the goal much to the disbelief of Kedze and the Redhill faithful. The Lobsters weren't to be denied a fourth though, Tevon Webster making the most of another defensive error to slot home into an empty net with 8 minutes to go.

The Reds sealing a big three points to move nearer to mid table, and securing their place in the Premier Division next season. They travel to Farnham Town on Saturday looking to pick up another valuable win.
