Back to back wins for Yate at The Jelf Stadium
Match Sponsors: Ex Yate Town players & managers
Yate Town made it 3 unbeaten and back to back wins at home as the single goal from Luke Bryan was enough to seal all three points. Harvey Rivers put in a MOTM display saving Yate on a number of occasions and proving how valuable he is to us.
The first half was fairly uneventful as both teams matched each other. Ex Yate keeper Lewis Noice had to save from Connor Jones, and Harvey Rivers made a routine save to prevent the visitors.
The second half opened up a lot more as both sides showed more attacking intent to get the winning goal. Rivers making a great save tipping the ball over the bar, while down the other end Shaun Gilbert's cross just evades Luke Bryan in what would of been an easy tap in.
The winning goal did come, and it went the way of Yate mid way through the second half. Mayson Evans shot/cross to the back post finds an unmarked Luke Bryan who slides in and put the ball into the roof of the net.
Then came the onslaught of the visitors, and if it wasn't for valiant defending and great goalkeeping the final score line could of been a lot different. Harvey Rivers making three fantastic save, one at point blank range to deny Winchester.
Yate were down to ten men for the last ten minutes as after using all three substitutions, goalscorer Luke Bryan came off injured with what looked like a pulled hamstring.
