High Five for Yate as they secure their status

Yate punish Ashton with 5 strikes and ensure they remain a Premier Division team next season

In a scrappy start, neither side were able to retain purposeful possession to create anything clear-cut until Sam Knight collected a ball on the left, picked up pace and cut inside to drill a neat finish inside the far post for 1-0. Yate then settled a bit better, becoming less anxious to force the game.

Ashton fought well, had some decent passages of play but didn't really threaten too much. The hosts had some half-chances but they all went unconverted before the break.

HT 1-0

After the restart, the visitors settled quicker, but Joe Shutt was proving a constant thorn in their side, with his speedy bursts down the flanks and dangerous deliveries, and his tireless work rate. His corner went uncleared in the 6 yard box and, as the ball hopped up, Luke Henderson was on hand to nod in at the far post. 2-0.

Lewis Neal, off the bench, chased down the visiting keeper, who spilt the ball on the edge of the box then clipped the striker's heels. This earned Yate a penalty and the unlucky keeper a red card in the process. Henderson successfully fired in his 3rd spot-kick in 4 games for 3-0.

Knight swung over a corner to Jimmy Sellick whose excellent looping header found the top corner before Shutt latched onto a quick throw and played a fine square ball to Henderson on the edge of the box. His measured drive arrowed into the bottom corner for his third and Yate's fifth goal.

FT 5-0
