“The Reds made it 10 wins in 12 games ”
Gavin Gordon named the same eleven that returned to winning ways against Knaphill on Saturday, with Kery Kedze starting on the bench for this local derby.
Redhill, who sat 10 points clear of their neighbours going into this game, started brightly and put pressure on the Lobsters early on without really testing Liam Sallis in the Red's goal. The home side needed a spark and they got one on 13 minutes, Tevon Webster latching on to a long ball over the top and slotting neatly past the on-rushing George Hyde.
It was just what Gavin Gordon's men needed as it sparked them into life, and within a minute it could of been two. Abisogun did well to find Webster who’s cross was inches away from finding the head of Tony Halsey. The visitors weren't completely out of the contest though and Liam Sallis had to make a smart stop on 26 minutes to deny Horley Town an equaliser. Webster was in flying form though and doubled the Reds lead on 33 minutes, making some space for himself before rifling his second home under Hyde.
The Reds were now playing with more confidence and looking to wrap things up before half time. Tevon Webster did just that completing his hat trick in fine style, again doing well to make space and finish neatly to make it 3-0 at the break. Indeed the margin would have been much greater if Tony Halsey had his shooting boots on as he found himself with scoring chances again and again.
The Lobsters came out after the break focussed on controlling the early part of the second half and denying the visitors any real hope of making a stirring come back. Jacob Mendy Mendy had the first effort of any note but his shot well off target. It was a half devoid of any real opportunities which suited the Reds who were in such a commanding position. They could have made more of some dangerous situations though, and again Mendy Mendy should have done better with 10 minutes to go, again firing over.
Horley were pressing to find a consolation goal and nearly found one late on but for Liam Sallis who was quick off his line and bravely diving to feet to smoother a through ball. In the final moments, Kery Kedze found Mendy Mendy who again was off target, this time by a whisker as his effort rolled agonisingly past the post.
Redhill ran out 3-0 winners and, having absorbing Horley’s early pressure, put on a confident display in front of the last home crowd of the season. Last game of the season coming up on Saturday away at Camberley Town - shame the season is coming to an end really!
