Taylor Ensures Victory

2 months ago By Charlie Bright

A late Lewis Taylor strike was enough for the Reds who stay 5th.

The Reds were looking to bounce back after Tuesday night's defeat at Banstead. Gary Abisogun and Kery Kedze dropped to the bench with Tevon Webster starting alongside Tony Halsey in attack, with Gavin Long right of midfield in an otherwise unchanged team.

Gavin Gordon's men made a positive start at the Brow, Tony Halsey done well to find Tevon Webster who could have done better with his effort. That was about the best chance of the first half as the game became very scrappy,  neither team could get a foothold in the contest. The only other chance of note fell to Webster just before half time, but again his effort was tame and Clements made a comfortable save.

Redhill were looking for their 9th win in 11 as the second half got underway, but the Reds were struggling to find their passing game and it wasn't until the 62nd minute that they had a shot on target, Jacob Mendy-Mendy with a weak strike that didn't trouble Clements in the Knaphill goal. The visitors themselves were finding it hard to mount any dangerous attacks with Liam Sallis rarely troubled.

The game was likely to be decided by a bit of brilliance or some poor play and it was the latter that helped the Reds to all three points with ten to play. A corner wasn't properly cleared by Knaphill, with the ball eventually dropping at Lewis Taylor's feet, the defender smashed home from close range to hand the Reds victory.

Knaphill had their best moments in the dying minutes as they pressed for an equaliser, but their corners came to nothing and they left Kiln Brow empty handed. The win kept the Reds 5th with two league games to go starting with Tuesday evenings local derby with Horley at Kiln Brow. Then they make the trip to Camberely Town on Saturday, who the Lobsters sit one place above in the table on goal difference.
